Who will win McGregor vs Cerrone?
Despite his long absence from the Octagon, McGregor (21-4 record) is favoured to defeat Cerrone and get his MMA career back on track. Considering McGregor's last victory was in November 2016, it's an interesting call.
At his best, the Irishman's counter-punching style is difficult to break down and he has a penchant for ending fights early. But he has also been known to tire as fights go on and that may be Cowboy's best chance of an upset.
Cerrone (36-13, one no contest) boasts a distinct height advantage, which also may work in his favour. Either way we're set for an entertaining fight between two men who understand this sport is a spectacle.
There have been plenty of niceties in the build-up. But if McGregor is indeed back to his best and sticks to his plan, we're tipping him to just prevail, but only just. And let's face it, whether you love or hate McGregor, UFC is more entertaining when he is fighting and winning.
