The Main Card Is Loaded With Many Intriguing Storylines

Fans around the globe have anticipated the match between Notorious and Cowboy for years. Their bout on Jan. 18 will mark McGregor’s return to the Octagon after a yearlong hiatus. It is his first fight since losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov, a match that ended up being the most successful PPV in UFC history.

Cowboy is entering the black cage on the heels of two losses, and he will try and do what he always wants to do: put on a show for the fans. There are massive stakes for both fighters in this welterweight match. If McGregor wins, he will be able to prove a lot of doubters wrong. He’ll also have numerous options for his next fight, including Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz. And if Cowboy wins, his star power will skyrocket, and he will keep his name in the conversation for a top contender fight.

UFC 246 is more than just about McGregor and Cowboy. In the co-main event, former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm will enter the Octagon for the first time since her TKO loss to double champ Amanda Nunes. It will be Holm’s chance to prove to the world that she’s ready to climb the ladder again to another title shot. She will be taking on Raquel Pennington, a woman she has fought and beat once before.

The main card will also feature Anthony Pettis. He is dropping back down to a weight class that he knows well, lightweight. He will be taking on Brazilian fighter Carlos Diego Ferreira, in a fight that will showcase if Pettis is ready to work toward a shot at a title that he once called his own.
