Dana White Leaks Brilliant Opening PPV Video For Conor McGregor Vs Donald Cerrone
Dana White has leaked the UFC 246 opening promo and it confirms that Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone is a must-see fight.
McGregor is set to make his return to the Octagon after a 15 month hiatus on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
And it's easy to see why the UFC President released the video two days early.

With Bon Jovi's 'Wanted Dead Or Alive' echoing in the background, it shows McGregor climb from an unknown commodity to a worldwide superstar who, in his own words, 'made this game'.
A narrator walks through the highs and lows of his MMA career and also gives a rundown of Cerrone and his achievements.
It also includes archive footage of a young McGregor discussing what he hopes to happen in his career.
The 31-year-old's return fight is his first since a submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October 2018.
He has returned to UFC with a calmer attitude and that showed at Wednesday's pre-fight press conference.

The build-up to the welterweight class has been cordial but the 'Notorious' managed to slip in some trademark trash talk.
He promised there will be blood spilled inside the Octagon come fight night, but it won't be bad blood.
"I have respect for Donald. He has earned my respect through his activity and through just observing him," he said about his opponent.
"He steps up. He goes through divisions also, not many a man in the business does that. He's been around so long.
"It's hard not to respect Donald. He has my respect. Although there will be blood spilled, it will not be bad blood. And for the Mystic Mac prediction, it will be a KO."
The press conference between McGregor and Cerrone wasn't the typical war of words with the former 'Champ-champ' admitting he's 'turned over a new leaf' ahead of his anticipated comeback.
"I'm still the same young kid I always was, I'm still an aspiring man and reaching for the stars, doing things that haven't been done before," he said.
"I feel like I've turned over a new leaf. I am re-energised and refreshed. Sometimes we need to go to certain places in our life to realise what he have to do.
"I'm very grateful and honoured to be fighting back on US soil, I've had many great moments here. I'm a fighter and an entertainer and to come here and give these people what they want gets me up in the morning."
