Cerrone, who has a history with McGregor dating back to 2015, has sent a clear-cut warning to the Irishman about his well-known trash-talking antics.

The 36-year-old UFC veteran told MMA Fighting: "He's the best at it.

"The thing is, you'd really have to go low, talk about my grandma or my kid and then it would put it on another level. You understand what I'm saying?

"Then I'll just come f**k you up in the lobby type s**t. I don't think it's ever going to go that way.

"He understands that. We're fighting, he can talk about that all he wants, but don't low blow."
