NOTORIOUS is back and topping the bill once again in the UFC.
Conor McGregor faces Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone at UFC 246 in Las Vegas as he looks to hit the headlines for his sporting achievements rather than misdemeanours outside the Octagon.
The Irishman hasn't fought since a damaging 2018 defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov, but is plotting a comeback victory.
Before the main event of the evening though, there's a packed card of action coming at you from the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise.
