The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor made his comeback against Donald Cowboy Cerrone. McGregor turned back the clock and looked hungry, passionate and extremely dangerous kind of like the McGregor of old, back when in he was still chasing the featherweight and lightweight titles in 2014, 2015, 2016 and before that. He absolutely smashed Cerrone in just 40 seconds of the very first round. However, Cerrone is well known for not being out of commission for too long and recovering as quickly as Wolverine. Thus, Cowboy has already started teasing for a potential comeback fight in March or April.
McGregor started the fight fast putting instant pressure on Cerrone as he quickly closed in the distance as soon as the bell rang. He went to throw a strike which Cowboy dodged and level changed to go for a takedown, McGregor on the contrary jumped and partially hit Cerrone with a knee, and the two engaged in a clinch. McGregor then absolutely stunned Cerrone and hit him with three freak powerful shoulder strikes.
The two then disengaged from the clinch and got into kickboxing range. McGregor did a few feints as Cowboy hit a high head kick, which was blocked and instantly countered by Mystic Mac via head kick of his own which again rocked McGregor and dropped him to the canvas. The Irishman then proceeded to ground and pound his way to victory.
Since his defeat Cowboy has been really active on social media. He has till now mostly posted holiday pictures with his family and friends. One recent Instagram post sent all the MMA fans into a frenzy when Cerrone posted a picture with his son and captioned it by asking him should he fight in March or in April. Here’s what Cowboy captioned the image as:
What you thinking Danger?? We should fight in March or April?
