Fans are ecstatic as they anticipate “The Notorious” Conor McGregor step back inside the Octagon to face off Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 246. The two will be fighting for the Welterweight title. The bout of McGregor vs Cowboy is set to be at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. For fans who are not going to the match, stream McGregor vs Cowboy on Firestick.
The Notorious has not been in the game since his defeat by submission to “The Eagle”, in October 2018. The excitement for the upcoming match is all over the place as fans debate if the rankings of Welterweight will be in the same order as that of Lightweight, with McGregor currently standing at #4 and Cerrone at #5.
2020 has been very exciting for MMA fans so far. First the redemption of McGregor was announced, and to rush their adrenalin further, his return is embarked by a match against Cerrone! However, it is questionable whether the return of McGregor will be a very successful one, given that it will be Cerrone’s 11th Welterweight fight and McGregor’s 3rd. Will the Irishman’s return be as celebrated after the fight as much it is before it, or will the advantage of Cerrone’s experience ambush McGregor’s return to career?
McGregor’s striking coach, Owen Roddy, is confident in him and believes Donald Cerrone will “crumble under the pressure of fighting The Notorious – as he has seen it all before.” He thinks McGregor is phenomenal as ever and is a fan favourite for a reason. He believes no one escapes the pressure Connor poses on them during the fight- one is bound to crumble under it.
On the contrary, although Cowboy has lost a total of 13 fights, including his last two, and has not won any belts, he has also fought way more fights in total, giving him more experience. 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 October 2018 might also mean McGregor’s game might not be the same, although many believe that is barely a concern.
Fans also contemplate that if Cerrone survives the first few rounds, his impressive boxing skills and head kick stunts 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, including those against Leon Edwars and Robbie Lawler. Roddy, McGregor’s coach, admits about Cerrone that he is “tricky,crafty, well-versed everywhere” and that he has go immense game, but is adamant that the best Cerrone can still not beat the best McGregor.
Roddy also believes that while Cerrone will put up a good fight, it is just a matter of when Conor gets to land on him. He is confident that Conor will win the fight via knockout, and reminds people of the deadly power of his left hand.
