UFC 246 is lining up to be quite the pay-per-view. Already featuring the return of Conor McGregor, the event will now contest a highly awaited rematch between Raquel Pennington and former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm.

Holm, who last competed in the Octagon at UFC 239, will be returning to the Octagon since her title-fight loss to current UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes. Upon her return to the cage, 'The Preacher's Daughter' will look to secure a big win over Pennington.

As of now, UFC 246 is confirmed to feature the return of Conor McGregor to the Octagon, as the former two-division world champion will square-off against Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone. On the other hand, Francis Ngannou has also called out Alexander Volkov for a fight at the event. Darren Till also wants to feature in the co-main event of the show against Robert Whittaker.
