Conor McGregor Notorious vs. Donald Cowboy Cerrone

Prediction by Anton Tabuena: Cerrone is a pretty damn good fighter, but while Dana and company are sensitive about the supposed “disrespect,” they really did book the best style match up for McGregor among all the 5 top fighters from either lightweight or welterweight. Cerrone has been stopped two straight times, and gets countered quite a bit by better boxers, especially early on. Those are McGregor’s biggest strengths. Cowboy also won’t have the speed and power advantage, and his (underrated) takedowns are mostly from timing people who charge in — something that McGregor rarely does.

Cowboy has to survive the first two rounds without taking massive damage, and he has to throw his kicks without getting countered. He shouldn’t overcommit to his punches either, or he could suffer a similar fate to his bout with Gaethje. If Cowboy sticks to a good game plan and fights the perfect fight in the opening two rounds, he can take over late. It’s just a really tough match up, and a lot of things have to go well for him to have a chance. While many would hope that Cowboy catches him with a head kick and turns the tide, to me McGregor is the easy and logical pick here. Conor McGregor by KO.
