“Weight cuttin pussies,” McGregor wrote.
Both Cerrone and McGregor have fought at 170lbs before. McGregor fought in the welterweight category twice and both the times against Nate Diaz. In the first fight, Diaz submitted him via RNC in the second round at UFC 196. However, McGregor was able to avenge his loss in an epic rematch which took place at UFC 202, where he defeated Diaz via majority decision.
Cerrone also has a bittersweet experience of fighting at welterweight. After fighting out most part of his career at lightweight, Cerrone moved up to welterweight for the first time in 2016, where he faced Alex Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 83 and defeated him via submission in the first round. He then went on to win his three fights at 170lbs against the likes of Patrick Cote, Rick Story and Matt Brown.
Things went downhill from there, however, when he fought Jorge Masvidal at UFC on Fox 23, where he got knocked out in the second round. He then lost to Robbie Lawler via UD at UFC 214.
He then fought Darren Till at UFC Fight Night 118, where he got brutally knocked out in the first round. This led to Cerrone moving back to the lightweight division.
The fight is highly intriguing as McGregor is fighting at 170lbs after a layoff of nearly fifteen months while Cerrone has been very active this year, competing four times inside the Octagon. He is 2-2 in the UFC in 2019, whereas Conor McGregor hasn’t won a fight in the UFC in more than three years. His last win was against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.
Who do you guys think wins this fight?
