UFC 246 results, recap, and link wrap-up: McGregor wrangles ‘Cowboy,’ Holm wins ‘Rocky’ sequel

UFC 246 was no exception, as “Notorious” returned to the Octagon in style by obliterating longtime veteran, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, in less than a minute during the pay-per-view (PPV) main event last Sat. night (Jan. 18, 2020) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
