Conor McGregor might be insanely rich after facing off against Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match, but he is in need of a victory as he is coming up on 3 years since his last win, which came against Eddie Alvarez in November 2016.
He very well may be getting his shot in 2019, because a fight seems to be in place for him to face Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, according to Joe Rogan, who says it’s a “done deal.”
“Conor-Cowboy is a done deal, as far as I know,” the longtime commentator said.
McGregor is due to return to the octagon after his suspension ends in April due to the melee that took place following the loss to Khabib in October.
Dana White has already stated he wants to see McGregor back in the ring, and against Cerrone.
I’d like to see Conor fight this summer, if those two [McGregor and Cerrone] want to fight each other, they’ve both earned it,” said the UFC boss in February.
“Cowboy’s fought anybody we’ve ever put against him… we throw this young killer [Alexander] Hernandez at him, Cowboy’s the underdog, he goes in and does it the way he did it, and then Conor’s fought everybody.
“If these two want to fight, I’m down,” White added.
