RotoWire Staff Picks: UFC 246

RotoWire Staff Picks: UFC 246

This article is part of our RotoWire Staff Picks series.

No title fights, no problem. There's plenty of buzz whenever Conor McGregor makes the walk to the Octagon, and all eyes will be on him when he takes on the company's all-time wins leader in Donald Cerrone. Win, and McGregor has a clear path back to the belt. Lose, and he'll once again be fighting off retirement rumors. The stakes couldn't be higher in the controversial star's long-awaited UFC return.

As a reminder, these are purely picks. If you're looking for a fantasy-specific breakdown of these fights on DraftKings, click here for Jon Litterine's 246 Preview or tune into Fight IQ live Thursday at 8:00 p.m. EST on the RotoWire Youtube Channel.
