McGregor Returns to the Octagon

Mcgregor will try to defeat Donald Cerrone, also known as Cowboy Cerrone, in this event. They will be the main event of the UFC 246 fight on that day.

McGregor has a professional record of 21 wins and four losses in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). In his career as a boxer, he faced undefeated boxer, Floyd Mayweather, but failed to defeat Mayweather. He discontinued professional fighting when he lost a fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018. The battle cost McGregor his lightweight title through submission.

After his defeat by Nurmagomedov, McGregor had encountered multiple cases against the law. McGregor had pleaded guilty of causing harm to a man during a court hearing on November 1, 2019, while he was in a Dublin tavern in the earlier parts of 2019.

McGregor released a statement about his return fight in the Octagon after staying away from any professional mixed martial arts and boxing fights for 15 months. He said that the fighter would be focusing on making additional magical moments in his fights in the Octagon.
