Donald Cerrone Reacts To Footage Of Him Limping Heavily, Days Before Conor McGregor Fight
Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone has reacted to speculation that he's carrying an injury ahead of his upcoming fight against Conor McGregor.
With just days until the main event at UFC 246, Cerrone's physical condition has become a major talking point in recent hours after footage emerged from UFC's Embedded Vlog series on YouTube.
The 36-year-old can be seen limping heavily as he walks around a Las Vegas car park.
Moments later, he continues to hobble around the city.
Anyone else notice Cerrone quite clearly limping in the start of this #UFC246 Embedded Video? Also was the camera focus on the foot at the end coincidence? pic.twitter.com/E6Us4SZ8iP

So, is it just me or does Donald Cerrone have a very, very, very noticeable limp near the start of this video?https://t.co/fOa7vQ1kI4- John Balfe (@JohnBalfe) January 14, 2020
Cerrone has since addressed the speculation surrounding his limp in a recent interview, playing down a potential injury, just days before the McGregor bout on Saturday night.
But people are still questioning the concerning YouTube footage.
"I knew that was going to come up." Cerrone told reporters. "People are good. Put a little limp, what if I was walking with a drawl? Or maybe I stepped on a Lego? I got a kid now!"
"No, I'm good. No, I'm fine. I just kicked a pad funny, it was nothing, you know."

Many fans have taken to social media after the UFC embedded footage was released on Tuesday night.
"Is anyone going to mention that Cowboy was limping in that first clip when he was walking through the parking lot?" said one YouTube user, while another commented: "Cowboy looks like he's hurt with that limp."
