Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone has arrived at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for his fight with Conor McGregor at UFC 246 tonight.

The American veteran is hoping to upset the odds against the controversial Irishman this evening.

Cerrone, 36, has lost his last two fights and is widely expected to lose against McGregor, who his making his long-awaited return to the Octagon.

Tonight’s fight will take place at welterweight – as McGregor begins his campaign to become the first man in UFC history to win world titles in three different weight classes.

Should he get past his veteran American opponent in their welterweight encounter at the T-Mobile Arena, McGregor is planning to fight at least twice more this year.

However, the weight class and opponent is irrelevant for McGregor, who added: “It can be Jorge (Masvidal), it can be Kamaru (Usman), it can be the Khabib rematch, it can be Tony (Ferguson), it can be Justin (Gaethje).

“There’s a whole host of brilliant names. It could be Max (Holloway). I don’t care. Activity is what I’m after.”
