UFC 246 Videos: First Conor McGregor-Donald Cerrone Promo Released

UFC 246 will kickoff the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s 2020 pay-per-view schedule with a bang on Saturday, January 18. The event marks the highly-anticipated return of former two-division champion Conor McGregor, who is set to take on the always exciting fan-favorite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.

The bout will take place in the welterweight division.

McGregor last appeared inside of the Octagon in October 2018 when he suffered a submission loss to lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Prior to his loss to Nurmagomedov, McGregor was on a two-fight winning streak with a welterweight bout victory over Nate Diaz and a Performance of the Night against Eddie Alvarez to claim the 155-pound title on November 12, 2016. However, McGregor was later stripped of the title due to inactivity — he was previously stripped of the featherweight belt after winning the lightweight crown.

Cerrone, meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back after a two-fight losing streak. “Cowboy” went 2-2 in 2019 with wins over Al Iaquinta and Alexander Hernandez, while suffering losses to top lightweight contenders Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje. Three of Cerrone’s last four fights earned him $50,000 bonuses for Fight of the Night.

Ahead of the event, the UFC released its first promo for the McGregor-Cerrone pay-per-view titled “The Showdown.”
