Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor is all set to fight Donald Cerrone this weekend at UFC 246. The fight will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
This will be his first fight in nearly fifteen months.
The fight is highly intriguing as McGregor is fighting at 170lbs after a layoff of nearly fifteen months. His last fight took place against UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov where he lost the fight via rear-naked choke submission in the first round. Cerrone has been very active this year, competing four times inside the Octagon.
He is 2-2 in the UFC in 2019, whereas Conor McGregor hasn’t won a fight in the UFC in more than three years. His last win was against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.
Ahead of his comeback, the Irishmen has a message for the Indian fans. MMA India Show received the footage.
