The Main Event, Episode 29: The return of Conor McGregor, Cecilia Braekhus and NXT v. AEW

The return of Conor McGregor was bound to raise some eyebrows, especially with all of the legal issues surrounding him. Signing onto a fight against Donald Cerrone, however, may be the first step in his rise back to prominence. With only seven weeks until showtime, will the Irishman be able to prove to the world that he is the Conor McGregor of old? More importantly, will his two sexual assault cases come into play between now and then?

On the latest episode of The Main Event, host Dan Yanofsky discusses McGregor’s fight against “Cowboy” Cerrone and what it means for the world of MMA.

Other topics discussed include Cecilia Braekhus’ huge fight against Victoria Bustos in Monaco. After signing a new deal with DAZN and Matchroom Boxing, the undisputed Welterweight Champion is looking to show the world why she is the Queen of Boxing. A win over Bustos can result in a giant matchup between either Katie Taylor or Amanda Serrano.

Finally, The Main Event tackles AEW v. NXT. Who truly has the advantage in the Wednesday Night Wars, ratings excluded? Is there anything both brands need to improve on come 2020?
