Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone. That will be the first main event in the year 2020 for UFC and what an event it is. Win or lose, it’s a huge show when McGregor is in the town. And on his long-awaited octagon return, Conor takes on the UFC legend, Donald Cerrone.
When the fight was made official, there was a little disappointment among the fans concerning the opponent, Donald Cerrone. Cowboy is coming off two losses at the lightweight division against two of the very best in the game, Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje. It was believed that Conor would get an easy win over Cerrone on his UFC return.
However, that notion is starting to fade away as we come closer to the fight day. The fact that this fight takes place at welterweight division has made the fight an intriguing one. Besides that, this fight might open up a ton of potential mega fights for the winner. On one hand, Conor will be fighting to bounce back from the loss he suffered in the hands of Khabib Nurmagomeodv. And on the other hand, Cowboy will be looking to get into a war on January 18th and come out victorious.
The enthusiasm for this fight could not have been higher until UFC president, Dana White revealed the UFC 246 show open 2 days before the fight night and this has to fire you up for the McGregor vs Cowboy clash.
“HOLY F***IN SHIT!!!!!!!!!! Sorry… yes I had to share this early. If this doesn’t fire u up NOTHING will”
The press conference for UFC 246 was a very intriguing one. It was not a typical Conor McGregor press conference. Both Conor and Cowboy were respectful to each other, but they promised a war on January 18th. Conor claimed:
“It’s hard not to respect Donald. He has my respect. Although there will be blood spilled, it will not be bad blood. And for the Mystic Mac prediction, it will be a KO.”
Without a doubt, it’s going to be a spectacle when Conor McGregor squares off against Donald Cerrone in the T-Mobile Arena on January 18th.
