Prepare for UFC 246 by watching McGregor’s fights on ESPN+

One of the most highly anticipated MMA events in recent memory is coming this Saturday, with “The Notorious” Conor McGregor finally stepping back into the octagon after more than a year’s absence to face off against veteran Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. UFC 246 is coming to the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, with the main card being an exclusive pay-per-view event to be broadcast on ESPN+. If you’ve already signed up for this streaming service, or if you’re thinking of jumping on board, then now’s the perfect time to do so and to watch some of McGregor’s best fights before UFC 246.

Conor McGregor is a fighter who needs no introduction to MMA fans, and even people who aren’t into UFC likely know who he is. The 31-year-old Irish mixed martial artist and boxer has had a successful and very colorful career, but not one without its fair share of controversy, with McGregor having been both stripped of titles as well as suspended from fighting due to various incidents and infractions. Despite this (or perhaps in part because of it), the former featherweight and lightweight champion remains a beloved rockstar within the UFC and the promotions biggest pay-per-view draw, with five of the six highest-grossing UFC events featuring McGregor on the main card.

We’re all looking forward to an exciting main card at UFC 246 this Saturday, and until then, there’s plenty of time to go back and revisit some of the biggest highlights — comprising both the wins and the most notable defeats — of McGregor’s MMA career. All of the following matches are now available on ESPN+ as well so you can start streaming right away if you’re already signed up:

  • UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor
  • UFC 229: McGregor vs. Nurmagomedov
  • UFC 196: McGregor vs. Diaz 1
  • UFC 202: McGregor vs. Diaz 2
  • UFC 189: McGregor vs. Mendes
  • UFC 205: Alvarez vs. McGregor
  • UFC Sound Waves: Conor McGregor

UFC 246: McGregor vs. Cerrone is scheduled for 10 p.m. ET this Saturday, January 18, and the main card is a pay-per-view event that will air live exclusively on ESPN+. If you haven’t yet signed up for ESPN’s premium streaming service and are looking for a way to stream UFC 246 online this weekend, then now’s a great time to do it, as new members can take advantage of this exclusive bundle offer that nets you a year’s worth of ESPN+ along with the UFC 246 PPV bundle for just $85, saving you more than 25% off the price of buying them separately.

Watch Matthew McConaughey fight for riches in red band ‘Gold’ trailer
gold red band trailer matthew mcconaughey still

A lucky break doesn't mean an end to all your problems. That much is clear in the new red band trailer for Gold, starring Matthew McConaughey. TWC-Dimension dropped the latest preview Tuesday, and it shows that one man's jackpot is only a the beginning of new trouble.

Loosely based on a true story, Gold follows Kenny Wells (McConaughey), a down-on-his-luck man who had lost everything (including much of his hair). When he goes prospecting in the jungle of Indonesia, he manages to find billions of dollars worth of the precious mineral. But that's far from the end of the story.

A highway connecting London and New York ... the long way 'round? Well, now you have to feel bad for Ewan McGregor.

It’s been theorized that, long ago, the region known as Beringia connected the two land masses that would become the continents of Asia and North America. It’s also theorized that this land bridge is how humans spread themselves across the world as we know it today. Bringing our past inline with our future, some are now proposing a massive trans-Siberian highway to once again reunite these long-separate continents.
