UFC 246 is quickly approaching as not only the year's first but also one of the most anticipated UFC events of 2020. It will see the UFC return of superstar Conor McGregor following a lengthy hiatus from MMA. He faces fan favourite Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in the main event, which is expected to deliver fireworks. Both fighters are coming off of losses and will be eager to return to the win column at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
While nobody is looking past Cerrone, McGregor has repeatedly mentioned his arch rival Khabib Nurmagomedov on multiple occasions leading up to UFC 246. The two fought at UFC 229 in 2018, with Nurmagomedov winning by fourth round submission. The fight built up from a contentious rivalry that resulted in violence outside of the cage. With a Nurmagomedov rematch clearly on McGregor's mind, it's not far fetched to believe that he will call him out after next weekend's event. At Ohmbet you can win twice your wager with 1/1 odds should McGregor elect to challenge his long time rival.

McGregor has also been vocal regarding last years BMF title, awarded to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 following his TKO win over Nate Diaz. The Irish superstar has called the title of his, and has been interested in facing Masvidal. With 4/1 odds should McGregor instead elect to call out Masvidal, that is doubtlessly an interesting bet as well.
If you instead think that McGregor will be out after a trilogy bout with Nate Diaz, you can win ten times your bet with 9/1 odds, earning ten times your wager.
These are, however, far from the only interesting wagers that can be made ahead of UFC 246 with Ohmbet's UFC Boost and Special betting lines.
Can Anthony "Showtime" Pettis land another superman punch?
Former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis returns to the division at UFC 246 after a two fight stint at welterweight, resulting in a 1-1 record at the weight class. His crowning achievement at welterweight was undoubtedly his superman punch knockout over Stephen Thompson at UFC Nashville. Pettis is known for flashy, extravagant techniques, and there is a good chance we will see something similar against dangerous Brazilian Carlos Diego Ferreira. Now you can bet on Pettis landing another superman punch with 4/1 odds, winning five times your wager.
Russian submission expert Aleksei Oleinik returns to the UFC, facing Maurice Greene. Oleinik holds the record as the only fighter in the UFC to finish a fight via ezekiel choke - which he has done twice. While those statistics are impressive, the fact that Oleinik has won eleven fights via ezekiel choke is more so. You can earn a staggering 12 times your bet should the Russian win with another patented ezekiel choke.
