    DFW is looking at January 28th in Vegas for the fight.

    Would've preferred Gaethje but Cerrone will still come to fight. He's got a major edge in grappling and MT but still might not be able to handle McGregor on the feet.

    I don't see Cerrone being able to get to the ground or even having the grappling to submit him, honestly. Conor has been submitted by Nate and Khabib, no slouches on the ground.

    I think Conor picks him apart on the feet, ending him in the 2nd round. Conor is going to eat Cowboy's body alive.

    Set for mid-January at welterweight.

    Interesting angle here with the WW development; gives Cerrone a bit of a boost, but not an advantage. I really hope we are getting a motivated, FW title run type of Conor back. The UFC has quickly become a $$$ fight business and if he can secure a win; he's got some big options with Nate and Jorge.
