UFC holding special press conference for Conor McGregor, Cowboy Cerrone and yes, fans are invited

I’m sure by now, most mixed martial arts (MMA) fans know what to expect when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) holds a special pre-fight press conference featuring former lightweight champion, Conor McGregor.

If not, check out the highlight package embedded above.

“Notorious” will return to the stage inside Pearl Theater at Palms Resort Casino on Weds., Jan. 15 at 8 p.m. ET alongside fellow UFC 246 pay-per-view (PPV) headliner, Donald Cerrone, to help promote their Jan. 18 showdown inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The event is open to the public with first-come, first-serve seating.

McGregor will be making his first Octagon appearance since a submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 back in Oct. 2018. His “Cowboy” fight — contested at welterweight — is expected to earn him a lightweight title shot.

Assuming he wins, of course.
