Conor McGregor has always been deemed as a striker. His biggest wins in the UFC have come via his striking prowess. Conor has also had a history of struggles with wrestlers.

The first time he fought an elite wrestler was against Chad Mendes. Even though McGregor knocked him out, Mendes had the Irishman in all sorts of troubles during the fight. His last fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov was a reaffirmation of the same.

Therefore, this time around McGregor has been laying special emphasis on his ground game. And that seems all the more appropriate given his opponent. Cerrone is excellent on the mat having racked up 17 victories via submission.

Conor’s jiu-jitsu coach Dillon Danis shared a video of him and ‘Mystic Mac’ hitting the mats ahead of the fight against Cerrone this weekend.

Cowboy, in an interview with ESPN, has claimed that he wants to test his striking against the best. And for that reason he will refrain from hitting the ground against his next opponent.

“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.”

Despite Conor getting ready for all possible contingencies, he is still playing mind games against Cerrone regarding takedowns.

Of the two fighters, Cerrone is the one with options. He has a more well rounded game compared to his counterpart. Therefore, how the fight plans out will largely depend on where Cowboy wants to take it.
