Donald Cerrone posted a photo to enthuse fans about his anticipated fight against Conor McGregor. The photo was of a bottle of his preferred cheap America-style beer versus McGregor’s own whiskey. Associated Press reported that “Cerrone has eschewed McGregor’s Proper No. Twelve whiskey, but the winningest fighter in UFC history finally takes his shot at the hard liquor’s founder in a January fight at least five years in the making.”
The fight was announced in late November, and the prospect of “some four-letter-word trash talking between two of the biggest mouths in the sport was dimmed” when McGregor wished Cerrone’s family a happy holiday on social media.
McGregor is set to return to the Octagon to face Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone on January 18 in Las Vegas. He may no longer be a world champion, but “he’s still the biggest name in the sport,” said Forbes.
Cerrone’s “fight anyone, any time” style has made him grow into one of the more popular fighters in UFC. Associated Press reported that he has done it all except win a UFC championship.
