If you’re heading to “Sin City” to catch the return of the UFC’s biggest star against one of its most decorated and accomplished fighters ever, there are a couple events you can attend for free.

UFC 246 takes place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+.

In the main event, former dual champion Conor McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) makes his return after 15 months away when he takes on Donald Cerrone (36-13 MMA, 23-10 UFC) in a welterweight fight.

Prior to the event, fans can attend a pre-fight news conference featuring McGregor, Cerrone and UFC president Dana White. The event is free and open to the public at Pearl Theater at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Doors open to the public at 3:30 p.m. local time, and the press conference is scheduled to start at 5 p.m.
