Tyson Fury Predicts The Winner Of Conor McGregor Vs Donald Cerrone
Tyson Fury has predicted Conor McGregor will defeat Donald Cerrone by knockout in his UFC return.
Fury has also revealed he'll be attending UFC 246 live on Saturday night to watch the fight.
The 31-year-old is already in America preparing for his WBC world heavyweight title rematch with Deontay Wilder on February 22.
He's set to take a break from his schedule to attend the event and he has no doubt on who's winning the main event.
"Yes, Conor McGregor is gonna win," Fury told reporters.
"I say by knockout. And I'm gonna be there to see it happen [at] ringside, cageside rather."
The comments came during last night's press conference when 'The Gypsy King' came face to face with Wilder for the first time since their fight in December 2018.
McGregor, meanwhile, is also convinced he's going to defeat 'Cowboy' on Saturday night.
"I'm going to go in there and do what I want and put on a show for the fans," McGregor told Ariel Helwani.
"Long may the opponents continue to come and I'll continue to knock them down."
My full sit-down interview with @TheNotoriousMMA is up now. Dare I say, a side we haven't seen of him before. I found his answers, candor & demeanor fascinating throughout. For example, this clip below about drinking leading up to the Khabib fight.- Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) January 13, 2020

Fury, meanwhile, was also in a boastful mood last night.
He and Wilder bickered during their face to face in Los Angeles and told the 'Bronze Bomber' he would suffer the first knockout defeat of his career.
"Two rounds and out. Two rounds," he said. "I'm gonna hit you at the point of the chin. The legs are going to go."
Wilder then said he wants Fury to be "terrified" ahead of their second fight to which Fury replied by saying: "I'm absolutely sh**ting myself. I'm frightened. I was so frightened last time, want I?"
I told you before our first fight that I was going to baptize you. And I did. But not even God can save you the second time around. I promise you that. :crown::fist: #BombZquad #TilThisDay #WilderFury2 #February22 pic.twitter.com/ADRJHQEhgq- Deontay Wilder (@BronzeBomber) January 13, 2020
Wilder added: "It's okay to be nervous." Fury replied: "I am nervous. I'm scared to death."
It's set to be a big few months in the fight game and it'll be interesting who stands tall in the two huge clashes.
