MacGregor agreed to have a fight with Cerrone
ConorMacGregor apparently chose the next opponent. This is Donald Cerrone. Waiting for someone else was difficult. Conor’s task is to approach the revenge against Habib with the least damage.
Since January 2017, Cerrone has held 7 fights of which he got 3 wins and 4 losses. Yancey Medeiros (UFC 6–6 record), Mike Perry (5–4), and Alexander Hernandez (2–1) were defeated.
According to PinUp, in an extreme duel against Alexander Hernandez, Cerrone made excellent use of his vast experience (29 battles in the UFC at the time of the duel). He was catching the blows of a young rival (2 fights in the UFC at the time of the fight), who rushed to attack, and slowly won ahead of schedule and also received a bonus for the fight of the evening.
Conor said that after such a fight, he was ready to fight Cerrone. And this is not surprising. Conor will be better prepared than in a battle with Habib. It is evident that Cerrone is slow, and the fact that he missed at the beginning of the first round from Hernandez would be enough to lose ahead of schedule in a fight with Conor.
McGregor in his last fight on October 6, 2018, as part of the UFC 229 tournament, lost to the UFC lightweight champion Habib Nurmagomedov.
