Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor is all set to fight Donald Cerrone at UFC 246. The fight will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on January 18.

It’s going to be the biggest fight of the year and even though Conor McGregor hasn’t fought in fifteen months, he is the heavy favourite going into this fight. However, Donald Cerrone’s coach is fully confident in his fighter’s ability.

Donald Cerrone and Conor McGregor

According to Donald Cerrone’s head coach Jafari Vanier, they only have to worry about the Irishmen’s left hand. McGregor’s right hand has ended the likes of Jose Aldo in 13-seconds, Dustin Poirier, Eddie Alvarez etc.

If I were to look at the two, he’s got a lot more to worry about than we do,” Vanier said. “We’ve got multiple submission victories, head-kick knockout victories, we’ve got decisions. He just has a left hand. You don’t see Conor submitting anybody, you don’t even see the guy going on the ground – very rare, right? Not saying we’re going to force the fight to the ground, but what I’m saying is he’s got a lot more to worry about than we do.”

We just have to worry about a left hand in that first round – him coming out on fire,” Vanier said. “You’ve never really seen ‘Cowboy’ ever gas. After the first round and a half for Conor, (he) fades. There’s not a lot of pop in that left hand any more, footwork goes down, his hands are heavy. So I mean these are all things that you watch and see, so these are no secrets to what’s going on.

So for us, it’s just a matter of capitalizing on those things, making sure we’re very aware, eyes open in that first round, stay away from that left hand. We stay away from that left hand, it’s going to be a short night.” (H/T – MMAJunkie.com)
