Conor McGregor’s 25 MMA fights ranked and rated ahead of UFC comeback bout against Cowboy Cerrone

Conor McGregor will finally make his return to the UFC Octagon when he takes on Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

McGregor, 31, has not fought in mixed martial arts since failing to recapture the UFC lightweight world title when he lost to the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018. He has since made clear his desire to avenge that defeat as well as becoming the first man in UFC history to win a world title at a third weight class.

The Irishman has long been one of the biggest draws in the sport and thrilling victories over the likes of José Aldo, Nate Diaz and Eddie Alvarez helped transform him into one of the biggest sportspeople in the world.
