Join us today on Bloody Elbow for live results, discussion, round scoring, and play-by-play as UFC 246 goes down in T-Mobile Arena in Vegas.
The main event will be a welterweight contest between the returning Conor McGregor and veteran stalwart Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. The co-main is a rematch five years in the making, with former champ Holly Holm meeting Raquel Pennington.
This post will cover the headlining bout between McGregor, who hasn’t competed since a UFC 229 loss, and Cerrone, who is currently on a two-fight losing streak. The bout is taking place at 170, but according to UFC president Dana White, it will have lightweight title implications.
We’ll start on Fight Pass and ESPN+ at approximately 7pm ET with two fights. The card then moves to ESPN at 8pm ET for four more bouts, then onto the main PPV card at 10pm ET. The full lineup and schedule follows. The preliminary card and the rest of the main card will be covered in separate posts.
Round 1 - Conor comes out and throws a big left right away. Cerrone steps into it but McGregor hit him with a hard shoulder check that hurt his nose. It looks broken. McGregor with a big head kick and he lands a left and Cerrone is hurt! Two more and he goes down! McGregor is all over him, changes position, and gets the finish! Just. Like. That.
Conor McGregor defeated Donald Cerrone via TKO (strikes), :40 of round 1
