How to Watch UFC 246

A full guide on how to purchase and watch UFC 246: McGregor vs Cowboy

"The Notorious" Conor McGregor returns to the Octagon for the first time in more than a year to take on the record-breaking Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on January 18. The bout is McGregor's first since his failed title challenge at UFC 229, whereas Cerrone is coming off a 2-2 2019 campaign that included three Fight of the Night bonuses.

Elsewhere on the main card, former UFC champions Anthony "Showtime" Pettis and Holly "The Preacher's Daughter" Holm look to reestablish themselves at the top of their divisions. On the prelims, streaking prospect Maycee "The Future" Barber gets her first top-10 test in veteran Roxanne "The Happy Warrior" Modafferi, and a pair of hard-hitting featherweights square off when "Super" Sodiq Yusuff puts his undefeated UFC record on the line against Andre "Touchy" Fili.
