On Saturday, Jan. 18, the UFC hosted UFC 246: McGregor vs. Cowboy from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
In the night’s main event, former featherweight and lightweight titleholder Conor McGregor returned to action against longtime veteran Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in a welterweight match-up. Ireland’s McGregor had competed just once since 2016, a fourth-round submission defeat to current lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov. Cerrone, meanwhile, had fought 11 times over the same stretch, picking up five post-fight bonuses while battling many of the sport’s biggest names. The veteran looked to snap a two-fight skid after dropping back-to-back contests to Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson.
The co-main event featured a bantamweight rematch between former champion Holly Holm and former title challenger Raquel Pennington. The pair met previously at UFC 184, with Holm claiming a decision victory.
The event kicked off with a preliminary-card stream on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET. The action then shifted to ESPN at 8 p.m. ET for the remainder of the undercard. The pay-per-view main card aired live at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
