Here’s to a good start to the New Year! UFC is all set to launch with their first match of the year on the 18th of January, 2020 with none other than Connor McGregor and Donald Cerrone!
This match not only marks the return on The Notorious but has also created a level of hype within the entire fan base that cannot wait to see the two compete for Welterweight title! Make sure you tune into watch the most anticipated match of the year on Kodi.
McGregor’s return sparks mixed feeling amongst the audience; as his last victory was back in 2016 against Alvarez and was last seen competing against Khabib which was a loss in his account. After a long period of inactivity, McGregor is now determined that he will fight three times in 2020, starting off early in the year against the veteran at welterweight. He has big plans to take on Jorge Masvidal and then rematch Khabib later in the year, but must first beat Cowboy or things get rather difficult.
While the Irishman is going in as the clear favorite with the bookies, beating Cowboy is no given, seen as he has won more UFC fights than anyone in history. Even though he has not won any belts, he certainly has relevant experience and the upper hand. Moreover, much has been made about the fact the pair will be competing as welterweights – mainly because McGregor has only competed in the division twice and Cerrone is no stranger to fighting in the weight class.
However, McGregor’s coach is confident that even though Cowboy may have more experience, and will put up an interesting fight, he is no match for the best of McGregor.
The fight has a lot of benefits for whoever ends up winning. For McGregor it can be the exciting return to his career while for Cerrone it can be his big break in the career to ruin McGregor’s return to his career and a very valuable win to defeat one of the best fighters in the game.

If you’re like the rest of us and can’t be there to watch the match in person then the only option you’re left with is to stream it online! Streaming it online also has two options- you can either use the ESPN cable service or the ESPN+ internet service. Or you could opt for UFC’s own service which provides you with a UFC PPV or UFC Pass. A UFC PPV pass costs $34.99 per fight while a UFC Pass costs $9.99 per month which allows you to follow past and upcoming matches.
However, whatever option you chose there remains the problem of availability. ESPN service is only limited to the USA regions and cannot be accessed internationally. Similarly, UFC has this unique method of filtering content according to different regions which means that certain fights are unavailable in certain regions.

Our boxing experts believe that McGregor simply went on a break to come back bigger and better (literally). They further say that the reason behind The Notorious bulking up and competing in a new division is quite possible because he wants to challenge Khabib for a rematch. That is, if things go well in his current Welterweight fight.
