After the mass brawl that marred his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov and the subsequent ban and retirement, Conor McGregor is back in the UFC.
McGregor will go up against Donald Cerrone in a welterweight fight at UFC 246 in Las Vegas, which he hopes will be the first of three fights in 2020 – the ultimate goal being a rematch with Khabib.
But veteran fighter Cerrone, whose first professional mixed martial arts fight was almost 14 years ago, will be no walk over.
Ahead of the highly anticipated encounter, we look at the tale of the tape.
