Cowboy Cerrone said the following :

“I think I’m gonna get through Tony, and Khabib or Dustin is going to get injured and I’m going to fill in in September in Abu Dhabi,” Cerrone told ESPN. “I don’t know, I just have a hunch. Khabib’s just really prone to it. I was supposed to fight him three or four times, every time he got injured. I think his training mentality and high pace that he pushes is just… he’s prone to injury. I’m not sure.”

Cerrone said the following :

“No (I’m going to go with the title),” Cerrone told MMA Junkie. “Conor’s had his shot. Sit your ass down now. (I’ll) take the belt.”

“I think Tony’s style puts him in danger a lot, so we’ll see if he can take the punishment,” Cerrone said. “His standup (is dangerous). You can’t see his strikes coming, his punches. Him moving backwards he’s not very good, though.”
