The next round of MMC is coming soon and we can’t wait to see who wins this one, as the stakes are high! We’re going to watch UFC 246 online, so let’s see what’s the best way to do this!

Who’s going to participate in this showdown? Well, the headlining fight puts McGregor and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone face to face.

Conor McGregor is an Irish MMA fighter and boxer and he’s already a former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion. He’s currently ranking 13th in the UFC pound-for-pound rankings and 4th in the UFC lightweight rankings. McGregor has 25 MMA fights under his belt, 21 of which were wins, 18 by knockout.

Daniel “Cowboy” Cerrone comes from Denver, Colorado, and he’s an MMA fighter and former pro kickboxer. He’s currently ranking 5th in the UFC lightweight list. Out of 50 MMA fights, he won 36, out of which 10 were by knockout.

While the stats are generally in McGregor’s favor, that doesn’t mean Cowboy will just take a beating. If he manages to win, McGregor gets a shot at the lightweight title, which is a big move considering that he’s been in somewhat of a retirement period throughout 2019.

Of course, while these two may be headlining, they aren’t the only ones fighting on January 18th. Here are all the match cards for the night:

UFC 246: Main Card
Welterweight Conor McGregor Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone
Women’s Bantamweight Holly Holm Raquel Pennington
Heavyweight Aleksei Oleinik Maurice Greene
Women’s Strawweight Claudia Gadelha Alexa Grasso
Lightweight Anthony Pettis Diego Ferreira

How to Watch UFC 246 Outside the United States?

Watching content when you’re in the US is super easy to do since you have all your subscriptions, but when it comes to traveling outside the country, things get a tad more complicated. That’s because ESPN+ is geoblocked so you won’t be able to access it if the IP shows you’re in another country. This issue can be fixed relatively easy with the help of a VPN that can change your IP in just a minute.

We can recommend you use a service like ExpressVPN, which is one of the best on the market with thousands of servers all over the world, including the US, as well as some really great features to help keep your data private.

Here’s how you can use ExpressVPN to watch UFC 246 anywhere:

  • First, you’ll need to subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% OFF), which will take a few minutes of your time. You should know the platform offers a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can ask for a refund if you feel the need.
  • Next, you’ll have to download the app and install it on your device. Launch the tool and log into your account so you can use it anytime you need it.
  • Then, you have to look for a US-based server to connect to.
  • The app will inform you when the connection has been established, so you can go ahead and load ESPN+.
