UFC 246 is less than two weeks away and it will feature the most popular mixed martial artist in the world Conor McGregor squaring off against Donald Cerrone, who holds the record for most wins in the UFC.

This will be McGregor’s first fight in nearly fifteen months. He was last seen in action against UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October of 2018.

Unlike McGregor’s previous fights, UFC didn’t hold any press conference for this fight. Press conferences are a staple of McGregor’s promotional prowess. It’s a tool for him to reach the masses.
