Conor McGregor is back. After losing to Khabib Nurmagemedov in October 2018 -- in a rivalry that often went to weird, racially charged areas -- McGregor is returning to the octagon at UFC 246 against perennial fan favourite Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone.

Love him or hate him, there's nothing quite like a Conor McGregor fight. The build-up, the media, the interviews -- McGregor has a way of raising the stakes of every single contest he's involved in to absolute fever pitch. This time he's testing his unique high-pressure/counter-punching style against Donald Cerrone, a fighter also known for being involved in entertaining fights. The twist? The fight is at welterweight (170 pounds), not at featherweight (145) where McGregor made his reputation, or lightweight (155) where McGregor was also once champion. Welterweight gives Cerrone, who had a very successful run at 170, a distinct size advantage over McGregor.

In short, this isn't a tune-up fight. It's a fascinating match-up that most expect McGregor to win, but this is MMA and anything can happen.
