Conor McGregor Gets Called Out By UFC Legend
A big, big fight could potentially be on deck for Conor McGregor.
The 30-year-old returned to the famed Octagon after his boxing bout against Floyd Mayweather by facing UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
But he suffered his second UFC loss following a submission defeat to the Dagestan phenom at UFC 229 in October.
The Irishman is now willing to face whoever is 'next in line' and there's no shortage of opponents.
The man with the most wins in UFC history (21) has - once again - put his proverbial (cowboy) hat in the ring. Enter; Donald Cerrone.
The veteran-American fighter is very confident in meeting McGregor 'soon'.
"I think [McGregor's] side is interested in it, I know I'm very interested, and for the UFC, that's a money fight," Cerrone told ESPN.

"By no means am I overlooking Alex. I'm focused on getting through him, and Conor is potentially what's next.
"I don't see why he would turn the fight down. I'm interested to see how it all plays out. I'm pretty sure Conor and I will be meeting in the Octagon soon."
It's not the first time Cerrone has campaign for a fight against McGregor.
In November, he posted a picture of himself alongside McGregor on social media, accompanied with the words: "Just waiting on him! 'I know a guy'".
Cerrone, though, has his next fight lined up in the shape of a lightweight bout versus budding prospect Alexander Hernandez in January.
McGregor vs. Cerrone in 2019...? Make it happen, Dana.
