McGregor Makes Big Return to UFC
This past weekend Connor McGregor returned to the UFC, and he did not disappoint. Conor McGregor faced off against Donald Cerrone in Las Vegas at UFC 246.
Before this, McGregor’s last fight in the UFC took place in August of 2018 against Khabib Nurmagomedov. McGregor lost that match in the fourth round. Later in March of 2019, McGregor took to social media to announce his retirement. Although many people were disappointed to hear of this, the current President of the UFC, Dana White, made sure to let people know that that this was not true.>
