Conor McGregor

McGregor will be coming back to the UFC, following a 15-month break, regardless of New York Times detailing that he is as of now being explored for two separate rape cases. He is coming into this fend off an accommodation misfortune against Khabib Nurmagomedov, from their battle at UFC 229. The decision is notorious for Nate Diaz, as well as in the second round of technical solutions over Eddie Alvarez. However, McGregor is very hard. But according to the coaches, their life in this mood is more serious and productive than before the last fight.

Donald Cerrone

Cerrone will make a convenient pivot from his last battle, only four months prior, where he was done toward the finish of the first round by Justin Gaethje. Donald will enter this fight as an underdog and it will be much easier in moral terms, since no one needs to prove anything. The Cowboy recently had a series of three victories, during which he managed to defeat Al Yakvinta. However, in the last two fights, he lost to Tony Ferguson and Justin Gacy – in both cases by TKO. And although Cerrone has 17 victories in submissions, he said in an interview that he will conduct the fight exclusively in the stance in order to give fans more spectacle. In such situations, he won very little to win, because Conor will wait for exchanges with blows. We also emphasize that the last time Donald went into the octagon in September last year.

Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone Predictions

The fight will be spectacular, especially if it takes place exclusively in the rack. For McGregor, this fight is very important from all points of view, so McGregor will certainly be perfectly prepared for this confrontation. Donald has already lost two bouts in a row by technical knockout and missed too many in those fights, and is unlikely to stand the entire distance of five rounds against Conor.
