Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor is all set to return to the Octagon against Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC246, which is set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena on January 18.

Heading into this fight, Conor is a heavy favourite despite the fact that he hasn’t fought in nearly fifteen months. He is also coming off of a loss to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. Cowboy Cerrone is also coming off of two back to back loses.

Despite all of this Cowboy Cerrone is one of the most accomplished fighters in the UFC even if he has never held a UFC title. He has won 23 fights in the UFC, which is a record for the most victories in the organisation.

Conor-McGregor and Cowboy Cerrone

UFC fighters like Jon Jones, Kamaru Usman, Max Holloway, Alexander Volkanovski and others gave their thoughts on this match-up in interviews with BT Sport.

JON JONES

Cowboy Cerrone and I have always had somewhat of a connection, and I am pulling for him.”

“…And at the same time, Conor McGregor, I love everything that he is doing for the sport. Such a great businessman. And he’s got so much awareness about the sport.”

KAMARU USMAN

I see a lot of people riding Cowboy off like he is mister wash. Because he’s won some and lost some. But Cowboy is a very dangerous fight for Conor. And you know I think in a bit of a Conor kind of underestimated him in a sense.

“I know Conor is a professional, and he’s gonna come prepared, but you know he’s underestimated an opponent before, and he paid for it. I think in a sense, he’s kind of underestimated Cowboy. And you have seen before when you light a fire in Cowboy, he’s gonna get going. So I think it’s a good good good fight but I am expecting Cowboy to respond.”

ALEXANDER VOLKANOVSKI

I will say Conor will take that one out. I think, look I have got a lot of respect for Cowboy, but I think it’s a good match-up for Conor. I think Conor finds that chin.” (H/T – SPORT BIBLE)
