Just moments after Donald Cerrone won his fight against Alexander Hernandez at UFC Fight Night 143, Conor McGregor tweeted,
“For a fight like that Donald, I’ll fight you. Congratulations.”
The tweet sparked the interest of fight fans who are interested to see a bout between Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone.
And when reporters told Donald Cerrone about Conor’s tweet, Cerrone said that he would love to fight Conor.
UFC President, Dana White recently appeared on ESPN and when he was asked about the possibility of the fight between Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone, he said that he would like to see the fight between Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and Conor McGregor.
He said, “Yeah, I like that fight. They both have called each other out. First of all, Cowboy, tell me that last boring fight that guy was in. The answer is never. He just bust into the top-10 – [Cerrone is a] warrior. Unbelievable fight he just had. And Conor McGregor has fought anybody we’ve ever asked him to. If these two want to fight I’m in.”
Conor McGregor, on the other hand, is suspended for 6 months and cannot compete till 6 April.
