The public simply cannot wait to witness Conor McGregor return to the Octagon on Saturday night against Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC 246 for the Welterweight title. The match is all set to take place in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena. For those of you, who won’t be able to make it, watch the match live on FireStick.
The Notorious has not bagged a fight since November 2016 when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez and only fought once since then, tapping out to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018. The buildup is real; fans are excited to see what results this match brings and whether McGregor is able to withhold the same rankings as the Lightweight rankings.
MMA fans have had a great start to the year, with the return of The Notorious. Not only have that but a match in celebration of his return against Cerrone! However, Cerrone is a dangerous opponent for the Irishman as he holds the most wins in the UFC with 23 victories. It is debatable whether McGregor’s return would be appreciated immensely even after the match or not, or will Cerrone’s experience play to his advantage and jeopardize McGregor’s return?
The audience is widely in favor of McGregor and has clearly not forgotten him, with McGregor’s coach, Owen Roddy, quoting that Donald Cerrone will “crumble under the pressure of fighting The Notorious – as he has seen it all before.” He thinks McGregor is exceptional and is a fan favorite for a reason.
On the other hand, even though Cowboy has lost a total of 13 fights, and is yet to win any belts, he has also participated in many more fights, giving him the upper hand. Cerrone puts up a great fight and has an incredibly impressive ground game, which happens to be McGregor’s weakness. His absence from the field since 2018 may be a cause of hindrance however, many beg to differ.
However, with round betting in full swing- the bookies are still on McGregor’s side saying that there is a possible chance he may win in the first or second round or through points. Although there is also high betting on which round Cowboy will dominate the ring.
If Cerrone proves the McGregor bookies wrong and manages to survive the first few rounds, his impressive boxing skills can bring the advantage to his side. He has lost 4 fights in the Welterweight division but has also had the experience of putting up a few of the most exciting fights, regardless of the losses. Roddy, McGregor’s coach is adamant that the best Cerrone can still not beat the best McGregor.
He further reminds the fans to remember the power of McGregor’s left hand and even though Cerrone may put up a good fight, it is only a matter of time until Connor beats him.
