This will be the first event of the year and McGregor wants to ensure that the new decade starts off with quite a bang! The Irishman is expected to face a new opponent at this PPV and while the word was that it might be Justin Gaethje, it appears that Cowboy Donald Cerrone is likely to be the contender that McGregor will face upon his return.

Conor McGregor vs Cowboy Donald Cerrone: Who Would Win?
In a fight between Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone, the returning Irishman is likely to dominate. While Cerrone has been one of the oldest and the most professional names in UFC, he hasn’t been having the best of runs and recently lost to Justin Gaethje. Unfortunately, Cowboy earned his moment in infamy which will live on for a long time by getting busted open by Tony Ferguson – who Khabib is likely to face next in the months to follow.
🔮 UFC gonna announce Khabib x Ferguson / Zhang x Jedrzejczyk / Andrade x Namajunas / Cerrone x McGregor soon.

Why McGregor Chose Cerrone
As to why Team McGregor wants the Conor McGregor vs Cowboy Donald Cerrone fight to happen, this is because most people in McGregor’s team see Cerrone as an ‘easy’ yet ‘popular’ target for McGregor to ‘feed on’ upon his return.
Gaethje is a talented youngster who is high off his win over Cerrone and he has been someone many have been calling the future of UFC. Hence, McGregor would likely face a safe-bet of sorts in Donald Cerrone who is likely to be a very easy win.
