Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone are booked for a fight week press conference.

The UFC announced Wednesday that McGregor and Cerrone will appear at the Pearl Theater in Las Vegas on Jan. 15 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT ahead of their welterweight main event matchup at UFC 246.

According to the announcement, the event is free and open to the public. It does not specify whether fans or media or both will be permitted to ask questions to the headlining fighters.

McGregor has developed a reputation for his colorful and occasionally explosive press conference appearances to hype up bouts with the likes of Jose Aldo, Nate Diaz, Eddie Alvarez, and Floyd Mayweather, among others. The upcoming fight with Cerrone marks McGregor’s first Octagon appearance since UFC 229 on Oct. 6, 2018, when he lost a UFC lightweight title bout to Khabib Nurmagomedov.

UFC 246 takes place on Jan. 18 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
