What's so great about UFC? You actually get the fights you want to see.
After Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone took down Alex Hernandez at UFC Fight Night in Brooklyn, Conor McGregor tweeted about the possibility of fighting the 35-year-old in the octagon.
For a fight like that Donald, I’ll fight you.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) January 20, 2019
A McGregor-Cerrone main event has long been rumored, but with Conor testing boxing and publicly feuding with Dana White, a return to the octagon didn't appear to be in the cards for quite some time (not to mention the embarrassment of the Khabib fight). This statement by McGregor reveals his future intentions, and that he's making a matchup with Cerrone--a UFC legend and fan favorite--his next chapter in a storied ultimate fighting career.
While the two fighters are nowhere near their prime, the entertainment value for UFC is unquestionably high. All the more reason for White and UFC to cash in and give us what we want.
