Conor McGregor And Donald Cerrone Trade Verbal Blows On Social Media

Conor McGregor And Donald Cerrone Trade Verbal Blows On Social Media

Conor McGregor has sent the first shot to Donald Cerrone ahead of their fight stating he'll see him next year with 'bullseye vision'.

Cerrone sent a reminder on Instagram that he's not to be taken lightly when he faces McGregor at UFC 246 in January.

He highlighted a variety of stats including his number of fights as well as his all-time knockdown record.


But McGregor was quick to reply with an ominous message for 'Cowboy'.

The 31-year-old left a comment on the post, stating:

"Good man Donald, enjoy the Christmas dinner.

"Happy holidays to you and the family, from the McGregor's here in Ireland.

"See you in 20/20 with bullseye vision."

The fight will be McGregor's first since his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018 and he'll be keen to mark his return with a victory.

Interestingly, the duo crossed paths back in 2015 but it never materialised into anything.

They had a verbal spat at a press conference ahead of 'The Notorious' fight against Jose Aldo at UFC 194.

'Cowboy' claimed that McGregor couldn't make the step up from featherweight to lightweight.

McGregor snapped back in typical fashion, stating:

"You're as stiff as a board, I'd snap you in half and that's it."

McGregor will be able to put his money where his mouth is on January 18.

His return to MMA has excited many fight fans and it's likely he'll have three fights in 2020.

Ariel Helwani claims that McGregor will target BMF Champion Jorge Masvidal or Nate Diaz in the summer before reigniting his rivalry with Khabib before the end of 2020.

"You hear this a lot in the fight game, but he's going to sleep early, he's waking up early," he said.

"He wants to prove to everyone that thinks he's shot that they are wrong.

"So he wanted to fight at the beginning of the year, then he wants to return towards spring/summer, maybe fight Jorge Masvidal or Nate Diaz."

"And then he wants to fight at the end of the year against Khabib Nurmagomedov, if he is still the champion, in Moscow. He wants to right that wrong."

Who do you think will win when McGregor and Cerrone face off?
