Conor McGregor and Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone will come face-to-face at their UFC 246 weigh-in on Friday.
The ‘Notorious’ is looking to reclaim his place at the top of the UFC and will begin that quest by taking on octagon veteran Cerrone this weekend.
The two superstars will meet at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night but before that, they are set for a week of pre-fight build-up events.
McGregor and ‘Cowboy’ will hold their final press conference for the fight on Thursday and will then take to the scales on Friday, January 17.

The ceremonial weigh-in will take place at 3pm Pacific Time which is 11pm in the UK.
McGregor weighed in at 154.5lbs for his loss to Nurmagomedov but has now returned to welterweight, something he is relishing, according to his coach, John Kavanagh.
“This far out, obviously we would be lowering the amount of calories he can have and that’s not the case,” he told talkSPORT.com.
Is UFC 246 press conference proof Khabib Nurmagomedov ‘humbled’ Conor McGregor? ‘Notorious’ appears changed ahead of ‘Cowboy’ fight
“To give you an example; this far out we would be on fairly light, single sessions a day.
“[11 days before the fight] he did two heavy sessions and one of those sessions was a full on spar, which is incredibly unusual this close to the fight.
“But I can’t seem to tire the man out!
“He’s got boundless energy because there’s zero calorie deficit and the guys from Lockhart know what they are doing about loading someone up on energy.
“But it’s a lot of fun not having to hide every piece of food in this house from him!”
