Conor McGregor Vs. Donald Cerrone UFC 246 Tickets On Sale Now! [Date, Deals & Ticket Info]
Attention, all mixed martial arts fans: tickets for UFC 246 are now on sale!
The main card will see controversial former lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor face welterweight Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Jan. 18. The bout will begin at 3 p.m. local time.
This fight had first been rumored to take place more than a year ago. However, UFC president Dana White said in March that the organization was still “nowhere close” to having the matchup finalized.
White also revealed at the time that McGregor — who has had several legal issues in recent years due to violent incidents — was aching for a lightweight title rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov. McGregor lost to Nurmagomedov via fourth-round submission at UFC 229 in October 2018. The 31-year-old Irishman served a six-month suspension due to his involvement in an altercation that happened after the event.

Former kickboxer Cerrone passed Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre for the most wins in UFC history in November 2018 with 21, so McGregor will certainly have his work cut out for him at UFC 246.
McGregor and Cerrone have a combined 28 knockout victories between them, so their upcoming fight will likely be a very captivating one. McGregor mainly relies on his hands for offense during fights, while Cerrone tends to follow a more traditional Muay Thai-like strategy for strikes and often uses jabs. His head kick is also famous for being deadly, so he’s expected to use it against an opponent as fierce as McGregor.
