Join us in the video player above tonight for a ‘radio style’ play-by-play broadcast of the UFC 246 PPV (pay-per-view) MAIN CARD with LIVE updates, results & reactions in our Live YouTube Video Stream, which will begin at the start of the main card, at approximately 9PM CST.
The UFC is showcasing the return of Conor McGregor at UFC 246 in the Main Event TONIGHT (Sat., January 18, 2020) from inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. What better opponent could there be than Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone? He will be entering the octagon tonight fighting out of Albequerque, New Mexico’s BMF Ranch, with a legendary 36-13 fight record; meanwhile, Conor hasn’t had a bout since October 6, 2018, when he lost via Sub-Rear-Naked Choke at 3:03 of Round 4 against the infamous Khabib ‘The Eagle’ Nurmagomedov, after having been defeated in a Boxing Bout by Floyd Mayweather, Jr. via KO/TKO at 1:05 of Round 10 the previous year, so the last time he actually won a bout in the UFC was against Eddie Alvarez back in November, 2016.
Also on the card, is a women’s Bantamweight Co-Main Event, with the #8 ranked ‘Preachers Daughter’ Holly Holm coming off a swift loss to Amanda Nunes on July 6, 2019, she will be going up against #5 ranked ‘Rocky’ Raquel Pennington, who is coming off a win against Irene Aldana back in July, 20, 2019; rounding things out, we will also be treated to another women’s bout in the Prelims Featured Fight between up-and-comer Maycee ‘The Future’ Barber and the veteran, Bloody Elbow’s own, Roxanne ‘The Happy Warrior’ Modafferi... what a night of fights we have to look forward to!
Conor, being the heel that he is, has garnered plenty of media attention this week - calling for a fight against Ferguson in the future, having been reported to be enjoying a 3 million dollar payout for tonight’s fight, getting into it with PETA, there being Rumors of a Title Shot and all while being protected by the UFC PR Machine. Let’s see if he can leave all his legal allegations outside the octagon and fight professionally, the way only he knows how.
You may have your reasons not to watch this event live or shell out the cash for the PPV - so we did it for you. Maybe there is just something more important going on tonight, where you just can’t be in front of the TV. Whatever the case may be, we’ve got you covered! During the entire five-fight main card portion of UFC 246, throughout the telecast, SBN MMA’s Matt Ryan, will engage with the live chat whenever possible. Along with his co-host Harry Terjanian, we will be doing a radio-style play-by-play broadcast of every single important bit of violence. The show is a modern YouTube stream, that will broadcast in the video player above, sort of like a sports talk show/bar hangout meets vlog.
Please join us and consider subscribing to SBN MMA on YouTube. Meanwhile, as the third member of our team, I will moderate your live chat, laying the ‘ban hammer’ down on those pesky spammers and link beggars, as well as offering support to the guys throughout the show with factoids, bonus updates and adding results and updated fight records in full detail, to the chat and description, as well as right here in this post, so no need to go anywhere else...
