UFC 246: McGregor vs. Cowboy streams exclusively on ESPN+ PPV on Saturday, Jan. 18, at 10 p.m. ET from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, marking the one-year anniversary of UFC on ESPN+ and ESPN. UFC’s first card of the year features its biggest star, two-division champion Conor McGregor (21-4), making his long-awaited and highly-anticipated return to the Octagon in a marquee welterweight main event against UFC’s all-time leader in wins and finishes, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (36-13,NC). In the co-main event, former champion and current No. 3-ranked bantamweight Holly Holm (12-5) will face No. 5-ranked Raquel Pennington (10-7) in a rematch of Holm’s 2015 UFC debut.
Arguably the biggest star in mixed martial arts’ history, McGregor returns to the Octagon after a 15-month layoff. The former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight champion, he enters the Octagon with a record of 21 wins and 4 losses. The first simultaneous two-belt champion in UFC history, McGregor has had spectacular wins over Nate Diaz, Chad Mendes, Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier in addition to championship victories over Jose Aldo and Eddie Alvarez.
A perennial fan favorite, and one of the most exciting fighters in mixed martial arts, Cowboy Cerrone enters the biggest fight of his career with the record for most wins and finishes in UFC’s history, with 23 and 16, respectively. A former lightweight title challenger, Cerrone has delivered thrilling victories over former UFC champions Benson Henderson and Eddie Alvarez as well as Al Iaquinta, Edson Barboza, Mike Perry and Matt Brown.
In the co-main, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holm, returns for a rematch of her UFC debut and victory, in 2015, against Pennington. Holm looks for a win following a title-challenge TKO loss against current bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 239 (July 2019). Pennington, who has won five out of her last seven fights, looks for a second-straight victory following a split decision win against Irene Aldana during UFC San Antonio (July 2019).
