UFC 246: Conor McGregor vs

How to watch Conor McGregor’s return to UFC ring on Jan. 18 on ESPN+ Conor McGregor expects big payout on Saturday's UFC return

His fights always have the feel of must-watch events, but this one is particularly fascinating for one very good reason: it could answer whether McGregor, one of the sport's greatest fighters, can stop his slide into being a rather tawdry sideshow and get back to the top of his profession.

Star fighter Conor McGregor, who this weekend will compete in the U.S. with a "Cowboy" Donald Serrone, at the time of preparation is finding the time to talk.

McGregor, the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion, is making his highly anticipated return to the octagon after 15 months, but he's moving up to 170 pounds to face Cerrone.

Conor McGregor is making a UFC comeback.

"I am going to knock him out in the second round, he is going down inside two rounds", he said. "It's cool. Thank you, Conor, and you're right, you do bring the biggest paydays".

Cerrone lost three of his four bouts in 2019 and despite never claiming a UFC strap, he holds the records for the most knockdowns in the promotion.

During Wednesday's UFC 246 press conference, Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone both made jokes about PETA eventually becoming enraged over Cerrone's python leather jacket.

TV Channel: Main event fight is not available on regular TV packages, only ESPN+ as a Pay Per View package in the USA.

UFC 246 will take place on Saturday, Jan. 18. McGregor and Cerrone should take their ring walks around 12:15 a.m. ET, although the exact time depends on the length of the earlier fights.
