Conor McGregor returns to the promotional stage inside Pearl Theater at Palms Resort Casino TONIGHT (Weds., Jan. 15, 2020) at 8 p.m. ET alongside fellow UFC 246 pay-per-view (PPV) headliner, Donald Cerrone, to hype their Welterweight showdown this weekend (Sat., Jan. 18, 2020) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
But, if you know a thing or three about “Notorious,” he will probably show up fashionably late. And there is actually a 6.5-minute tardiness over/under line that you can wager on right here (among other prop oddities) if you’re looking to get in on some early action.
The event is open to the public with first-come, first-served seating for those fight fans who are fortunate enough to be in “Sin City” to catch the show. The doors to the venue open to the public at 3:30 p.m. local time.
UFC President Dana White will, of course, emcee the event, answering questions from mixed martial arts (MMA) media — and fight fans — in attendance, along with McGregor and Cerrone.
