UFC News: Donald Cerrone pledges to stand with Conor McGregor: I want to test myself against the best - Cerrone

Conor McGregor will finally return to the Octagon after a fifteen-month hiatus against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246. The fight will take place at the T-Mobile Arena on January 18 in Las Vegas.

The Irishmen is the betting favourite heading into this fight. Fans consider Conor McGregor to be the superior striker compared to Cowboy, However, Cerrone disagrees with that notion even if he is the better grappler amongst the two.

Cerrone says that taking McGregor down could be wiser inside the cage, but he still plans to fight the Irishmen on the feet.

Cerrone not going for the takedown

You know, I probably should [try to grapple], but I don’t think I will,” Cerrone told ESPN (via MMA Mania). “I like to fight too, I like to get in there and throw down. Everyone says his standup is amazing, so why not go and test it?

Everyone says, ‘you want to just stand there and you’re going to get knocked out, that’s a stupid game, that’s a stupid decision.’ But it’s my decision, it’s my stupidity. Who the fuck are you to tell me what I can do?

I know who I am, I look in the mirror and I know exactly who I am so I get to go and make the decision,” Cerrone concluded. “I want to, why wouldn’t I want to stand with one of the best? Why not? Can I take the punch? That’s the question I want to know. Can he take my fucking kicks? That’s the question I want to know.

Maybe Conor will shoot on me.”

Cerrone is coming off two back to back stoppage losses against Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson. When Cerrone steps inside the cage at UFC 246, he would have fought five times in a year.

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.
