In UFC action alone, Donald Cerrone and Conor McGregor have scored 32 combined knockdowns (the numbers below include WEC action for Cerrone). They are the No. 1- and No. 6-ranked fighters all time by that metric. So when we say the UFC is kicking off 2020 with a bang, it’s because of this potential for striking fireworks.
Early betting lines opened McGregor as a clear favorite, and the market continues to support him, pushing his price now well over the -300 mark. We have their performance numbers, so let’s see if they lead us to take a side.
Saturday’s early prelims from Las Vegas begin at 6:30 p.m. ET on ESPN+, with prelims on ESPN at 8 p.m. ET. The main card starts at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+ PPV.
