Donald Cerrone-Conor McGregor On For This Summer, Says "Cowboy"

Donald Cerrone-Conor McGregor On For This Summer, Says

Cerrone and McGregor exchanged messages via social media earlier this year after "Cowboy" scored a victory vs. Alexander Hernandez to improve to 35-11 overall.

Khabib has had a heated rivalry with Floyd Mayweather, who fought Conor McGregor inside a boxing ring, so it would be hardly surprising if the UFC fighter made a decision to call him out for the match.

After Nurmagomedov submitted McGregor with a tight neck crank in the fourth round of a wild bout in October 2018, he refused to celebrate and instead leaped over the fence to charge at McGregor's cage-side friend Dillon Danis.

Nurmagomedov was furious his team-mates were punished with fines and bans, and declared he would not fight again until the UFC return to Madison Square Garden in November.

However, White, talking to MMA Junkie on Friday, admitted he would "like to see Conor fight this summer".

Those two want to fight each other; they've both earned it.

The champion's self-imposed exile would be a massive disruption to a stacked division and Nurmagomedov believes the UFC will put on another interim title fight. "Probably 3-fight, 4-fight, billion-dollar deal if that's what I wanted". The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and UFC Fight Pass. The two straight wins have him close to fighting Conor McGregor in a monstrous fight later this year.

He previously said "a lot of people want to see that fight" and that it should happen this year.
