Donald Cerrone Still Wants To Fight Conor McGregor
“Cowboy” Donald Cerrone picked up an impressive victory this past weekend at UFC Ottawa. Cerrone once again moved down to lightweight, and looked phenomenal against former title challenger, Al Iaquinta. Cerrone defeated Iaquinta with relative ease, and after the fight, “Cowboy” once again aimed shots at the Irishman.
Cerrone and McGregor were initially expected to throw down in July, after Conor was impressed with Cerrone’s previous outing. The fight fell through however, with McGregor refusing to fight in the co-main event.
As things stand, the fight isn’t expected to happen. That hasn’t stopped Donald Cerrone from lobbying for a quick turnaround fight with Conor McGregor during the International Fight Week in July.
“If Conor wants to fight, f*ck yeah, let’s go”, Cerrone said. “Especially in July, I’m ready, let’s turn and burn, baby. … Who knows? I’m gonna be sittin’ at home in a couple of months, bored, like, ‘F*ck. Fine. I’ll fight whoever, let’s go.’ But I love it.”
Cerrone further elaborated that he would either want to fight Conor McGregor, or will wait for the winner of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Dustin Poirier to fight for the title. However, with Cerrone looking for an early fight, he’s gunning for McGregor for now.
“Get a grip on life, bro”, he said (via MMA Weekly). “Let’s go. Put your bank account against my bank account. Oh s—t, he’ll see my bank account and be like ‘I spent that at the bar’. July 4th, Conor McGregor. Let’s go, dude, let’s go. I would definitely derail for Conor. But Conor’s [ranked] No. 2 so it wouldn’t not make sense to fight him. I would love my next fight to be for a title but if Conor comes in, let’s go.”
