Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone: UK start time, TV channel, streams and undercard


Conor McGregor is all set to make his highly anticipated return to the world of UFC this weekend.

The former poster boy for the sport’s rise to stardom was unlike anything seen before and now he is back to face the legendary Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.

But how can you make sure you know everything there is to know so you are sure not to miss any of the action on what promises to be an action packed night?

Well here is everything you do need to know about Saturday's event!

When is the bout?

UFC 246 takes place this weekend – Saturday, January 18, but will of course creep into the early hours of Sunday morning if you are watching it from England.

Where is it?

As with a lot of main events happening this year, such as Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder, the bout will take place in the land of dreams Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena. What happens there, though, certainly won’t stay there.

When will I see McGregor vs Cerrone?

Whilst the actual show commences at 11:30pm UK time, McGregor isn’t expected to make his return till much later.

Instead, 11:30 commences the start of the early prelims, with the prelims themselves scheduled to begin at 1am onwards.
