Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone: What to Expect?
One can easily expect Conor McGregor to defeat the Cowboy. Donald Cerrone has had quite the career and has had several marquee fights but this is the biggest fight of his career as the spotlight would be on him against Conor McGregor. Most fans, however, believe that this is going to be a very one-sided bout and that it is going to be a cakewalk for Conor.
Given that the cowboy lost to Justin Gaethje in the first round in his previous fight, Conor McGregor’s fans are believing something similar would happen here. By no means is this fight going to last all five rounds and this is just a platform for McGregor to exhibit the fact that he is still one of the toughest men in UFC.
Since McGregor vs. Aldo on December 12th, 2015.
McGregor: 4 MMA fights.
Cerrone: 15 MMA fights
