Default Conor McGregor-Donald Cerrone booked for January's UFC 246

The long-awaited return of former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor is finally in sight.

According to ESPN's Brett Okamoto via UFC president Dana White, McGregor has signed his contract to face former title contender and fan favorite Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone at UFC 246 on Saturday, January 18th in Las Vegas, NV. The fight will be at welterweight and not lightweight where the two have spent time during their careers.

White said McGregor has signed and Cerrone "is set to go".

The 31-year-old McGregor (21-4) hasn't been in action since losing via submission to rival and UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018. Due to his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather and other outside-the-cage factors, he has fought just once in the Octagon since August 2016.

The 36-year-old Cerrone (36-13-0-1) is coming off a two-fight losing streak with finishes at the hands of top contenders Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje, respectively. This will be his first fight at welterweight since a first round submission win over Mike Perry in November 2018. He fought 10 times in the UFC at 170 pounds with a 6-4 record.

The two have been angling for this fight for quite some time and had a verbal skirmish back in September 2015 at a UFC press conference that will get played quite a bit in the promotion for this fight.

What a joke. Cerrone coming off a knockout loss to a guy nowhere near as accurate and powerful as conor. Conor fights old men and midgets.

To be fair, Conor just got his sht pushed in last year so he's coming off a bad loss himself and that was his only MMA fight in the last three years.

Cowboy likely gets KO'd, but it'll be fun while it lasts. He always loses in his most important fights against the top guys.

Can someone explain why Cerrone keeps getting exposure? He's the MMA version of a gatekeeper.

I never thought a Conor announcement for a fight would have me so uninterested. I really don't care about this fight in the slightest.

Who else could he have fought?

Literally, the rest of the top 5 are garbage except for Khabib and Ferguson.

Conor already knocked Porier out and that guy proved he hasn't got better with the way he lost to Khabib by even worse than Conor did.

Gaethje is your average mma fighter with pure power punches, no technique, and zero takedown game. Literally tailor made for Conor's style.

That leaves Cerrone at 5 in the rankings. Anyone else is not worth it.

I've said it before, none of these guys are actually good but at least Cerrone will throw some kicks. Despite always folding in the big fights.

It's actually a good fight, objectively speaking. LW leans to Conor's favour, at WW it leans to Cowboy's favour.

Cowboy lost to the hardest hitter at LW and Tony Ferguson, you guys gotta be kidding me if you think Cowboy is a pushover. Gaethje can sit out and wait for a title shot, and this incarnation of Gaethje would beat Poirier and Alvarez for sure, he really changed his style since then. Gaethje has more 1-punch power than Conor easily, I'd love to see that fight but I doubt Conor can beat him now.

Conor has lost once to Mayweather and once to Khabib in over 3 years when this fight takes place, and he's been out for over a year by the time this fight takes place.

It's a really good fight, end of. Stop acting like Cowboy is a bum after his recent(ish) fight against Lawler, Hernandez, Perry, Iaquinta etc. Cowboy is fighting in the two most stacked divisions in MMA, LW and WW.

Not a Conor fan by any means, but I think you'd have to be a hater to dismiss this fight. "He's coming off of two losses", yeah, and what is Conor coming off of? Moot point, redundant point.

Levels, bro. Cerrone has 13 losses. He's a character, like Derrick Lewis.

What rank is he at LW? Who actually uses 'numbers' of losses as empirical evidence and not level of competition? (we both know the answer to that)

This isn't a bad fight at all, in fact it's a good fight. Is it the best fight? No. Even a fight against Felder, Hooker, Barboza wouldn't be a bad fight. A bad fight is against Frankie Edgar or someone not ranked in the top 15.
