UFC 246 features McGregor's return to the octagon for the first time since he lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov over a year ago, and he's taking on a fierce competitor in Cerrone. Considering McGregor's last fight ended in a loss and a brawl that resulted in his suspension and a costly fine, many fans are eager to see if anything controversial will take place in his return to the cage.

The event, taking place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, will be filled with many other entertaining fights.
