The 2015 World MMA Awards Coach of The Year nominee and the head coach of Serra-Longo fight team Ray Longo is picking Donald Cerrone to beat Conor McGregor

Speaking on the Anik & Florian podcast, Longo said that the Cerrone has more techniques up his sleeves to beat the Irishmen.

I really like Cerrone’s chances in this fight,” Longo said. “And like again, the only thing that could beat Donald Cerrone is just father time. He’s getting up there a little bit, but I’m saying the Donald Cerrone of a couple of years ago is winning that fight and I really believe he’s winning this fight. I think he’s got more ways to win and he’s definitely competitive. He’s been active. I think he’s taken enough of a break where he should come in fresh and we’ll see what happens.”

You know McGregor’s had a long layoff,” Longo continued. “He hasn’t had a win in a couple of years. I think the pressure’s on McGregor more than it’s on Cerrone by all means.” (H/T – BJPenn.com)
