Conor McGregor is set to make his long-awaited return to the Octagon. This will happen at UFC 246 where “The Notorious” will fight Donald Cerrone.
The battle will take place on January 18th in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and will be contested at welterweight. McGregor already has experience in that weight class after fighting Nate Diaz twice in 2016.
Conor McGregor vs. Donald Cerrone
Conor’s last match in MMA was in 2018 when he lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. The Irishman’s last victory in UFC was way back in 2016. He then defeated Eddie Alvarez for the Lightweight Title. Now, it appears Conor has set a goal of returning to MMA stronger than ever. McGregor will have some personal demons to fight, too. At the moment, he is under investigation for two sexual assault allegations and has also been found guilty for punching a man in a bar.
Conor McGregor’s current record is 21-4 with two of his losses coming in his last four matches.
On the other hand, Cerrone has fought seven times between 2018-2019, clashing with athletes like Mike Perry, Al Iaquinta, Tony Ferguson, and Justin Gaethje. “The Cowboy” lost his last two fights, but appears to be ready for McGregor after the war of words between the two began prior to UFC 194.
The fight between “The Cowboy” and “The Notorious” will certainly be an interesting one. We can’t wait to see it! What are your thoughts about the clash? Let us know in the comments below.
