The One Move In Donald Cerrone's Locker That Conor McGregor Needs To Avoid
UFC have released a video of Donald Cerrone's best finishes and it's clear to see Conor McGregor must avoid his strong leg kicks.
McGregor makes his highly anticipated return to UFC on Saturday night and he'll be squaring off with Cerrone in the main event of UFC 246.
Fans have uncovered a video of 'Cowboy' finishing his opponents in the past and one constant is his ferocious head kicks.
Cerrone is a storied veteran in the Octagon and one constant has been his quality striking combinations.
One key example of his kicks being deadly came against Melvin Guillard at UFC 150 in 2012.
He managed to knock Guillard out in the first round and also managed to collect two separate fight bonuses.
The 36-year-old has mixed it up with some of the biggest names in the fight game such as Tony Ferguson, Justin Gaethje and Darren Till in the last few year.
But his fight against 'The Notorious' will be the biggest opportunity in his long running career.
McGregor has cut a focused figure on social media leading into the fight and he's keen to make a mark in his first fight since October 2018.

He lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov and the Russian dominated the fight from start to finish.
But the Irishman is keen to right that wrong and reaffirm why he's one of the biggest names in UFC history.
The fight on Saturday will be fought at welterweight and McGregor's physique has been a hot topic in the build-up.
But he revealed over the weekend that he's only put on five pounds from his last fight.
"I'm underweight right now. I'm underweight. I'd say 160lbs and a bit," he revealed to Ariel Helwani.
"I know I could have [made Cerrone cut down to lightweight]. But I just don't think he looks well at 155lbs. He does not look well at 155lbs. He's a 170lb fighter. Why would I want someone to suffer?
"I don't care. No. I beat him any bleedin' way. I beat him at any weight. I beat him if I have the flu. So I don't need that.

"I just want to focus on my training and keep me sharp. You know, I don't have to cut and then build and then cut. I'm happy where I'm at."
