We are only 3 days away from the long-awaited return of the Notorious One. The excitement amongst the fans is at its peak and the press conference between Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone just gave rise to the hype.
Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone came face to face for the first time since the mega fight was made official. Well, the press conference was very different from Conor’s past press conferences. Conor showed up on time, both Conor and Cowboy showed utmost respect towards each other. But make no mistake, there will be a war inside the octagon on January 18th.
When asked to predict his upcoming fight at UFC 246, The Mystic Mac gave his final verdict.
“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.”
Conor McGregor even went ahead and predicted a second round knock out against Donald Cerrone. On the other hand, Cowboy seemed extremely pumped up for the fight ahead of him. Cowboy is coming for a 5 round of war against Conor. He stated:
“We’re here to blow the roof off this motherfucker. As Conor said, we’re entertainers. This is the fight I wanted and I’m ready for 5 rounds of battle.”
Donald Cerrone even fired back at the analysts for predicting that he would easily take Conor down and dominate on the ground. Cowboy believes that Conor’s takedown defense and grappling skills are very underrated. And he is looking to strike with the former two-division champion.
“You have to be fucking stupid to think this man [McGregor] doesn’t have a wrestling defense or some kind of grappling defense, so for me to just walk in and be like ‘oh I’m just gonna take him down and submit him,’ get a fu***n’ real-life man,” explained Cowboy.
