Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone will come face-to-face tonight at their UFC 246 press conference.

Expect fireworks as the combustible Irishman and former two-weight world champion prepares to make his return to the sport, having not fought since his submission defeat to long-term rival Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October 2018.

McGregror had been hoping to win back the UFC lightweight title but instead fell to a fourth career defeat and now needs to rebuild his career.

On Saturday night he will fight Cerrone, a UFC veteran with a 36-13 professional record. It won’t be an easy fight – but McGregor has to win if he is to have any hope of challenging Khabib again in the future.
