Watch Cowboy Cerrone’s full interview with ESPN ahead of Conor McGregor fight at UFC 246 (video)

Donald Cerrone will look to get back on the winning track when he welcomes Conor McGregor back into the Octagon at UFC 246 this Saturday night (Jan. 18, 2020) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And while “Notorious” has been stealing all the headlines early in the fight week, “Cowboy” is still one of the most popular and beloved fighters of all time. And similar to Conor getting his own exclusive and lengthy sit-down with ESPN (see it here), Cerrone got the same love.

Speaking to Brett Okamoto, “Cowboy” discussed a bevy of topics in the leadup to UFC 246, which includes his training, losing streak and what to expect from McGregor in the days leading up to the fight as well as the bout itself.
