    “I will box again, I will get a boxing world title.”

  • RETURN OF THE MAC, IT IS!

    UFC 246 fight week is HERE.

    And what a main event we have in store as the returning Conor McGregor takes on the 'Cowboy' himself, Donald Cerrone, at welterweight.

    It will be McGregor's first UFC bout since October 2018, when he lost to the fearsome Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov.

    In fact McGregor has not won a fight – including his big boxing match against Floyd Mayweather in August 2017 – since November 2016.

    It was then that he beat Eddie Alvarez to win the UFC lightweight title, but later was stripped of the belt due to inactivity.

    We will be bringing you all of the latest news ahead of Saturday's massive fight card in Las Vegas right here, including all of the goss from final press conference on Wednesday night.

    Then there is the small matter of the weigh in on Friday night, when the fighters will tip the scales.

    The Cowboy, 36, is no cannon fodder, however, he has won MORE UFC fights than any other fighter with 23 victories inside the Octagon.

    Can McGregor, 31, finally get back to winning ways or is he a spent force? Stay tuned here for all of the build-up right up to fight night…
