If you are looking to lay down some money on McGregor vs. Cerrone head over to bet-nv to see if you’ve got what it takes.
McGregor (21-4) is arguably the largest draw under the UFC banner, however, he has not graced the Octagon since October 2018. “Notorious” hit the scene with a bang and wound up winning the UFC featherweight and lightweight championships. The 31-year-old has not defended either of those titles. This contest against Cerrone will be held at 170-pounds, which McGregor has fought twice at. He went 1-1 against Nate Diaz at welterweight.
Cerrone (36-13, 1NC) is one of the most active fighters in the UFC. “Cowboy” has fought at both lightweight and welterweight. The entire calendar year of 2019, the 36-year-old returned to 155-pounds and 2-2 earning four bonus awards. Most recently Cerrone lost to Justin Gaethje by first-round stoppage.
In the evening’s co-main event former women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm takes on Pennington in a rematch of their UFC 184 fight in 2015.
Also featured on the main card are the following bouts, Aleksei Oleinik vs. Maurice Greene, Cláudia Gadelha vs. Alexa Grasso and Anthony Pettis vs. Carlos Diego Ferreira.
With the main event being of the magnitude it is, the ticket sales are through the roof. According to SeatGeek, the average ticket prices at $788 this event is 74 percent more than the last UFC event and the hottest event we’ve seen since Mcgregor’s last UFC in 2018 (229 – Khabib vs. McGregor). The get-in price (cheapest ticket) is $326 and prices have fallen 33 percent over the past couple of weeks, so fans who waited it out to grab tickets may have scored a better deal than expected.
UFC 246 goes down on January 18 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card portion airs on PPV and ESPN+, with the preliminary card on ESPN+ and UFC Fight Pass.
