Conor McGregor is set to make his MMA return at UFC 246 this weekend.
McGregor will step into the octagon for the first time since his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018 at UFC 229.
Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone is his opponent this time as the Irish fighter plots his return to the summit of the sport.
McGregor, who last won an MMA contest in November 2016 against Eddie Alvarez, is the favourite for Saturday’s bout.
But it won’t be an easy night against UFC veteran Cerrone, who has competed more times in the promotion than any other fighter in history (33).
Here is everything you need to know ahead of the event:
UFC 246 takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which means that the event will take place in the early hours of Sunday morning, Irish time.
The preliminary card begins at 1 am Irish time and the main card starts at 3 am.
So, the fight is expected to start at 6 am Irish and UK time. But maybe set your alarm for 5 am to be safe, just in case the contest starts earlier than scheduled. The contest will be fought at 170lb.
