Conor McGregor Vs Donald Cerrone: UFC Drops A Spine-Chilling Promo For The Upcoming Clash
UFC has turned the excitement for Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone up a notch by dropping a spine-chilling promo.
McGregor, 31, will make his eagerly-awaited UFC comeback in 2020 when he clashes with Cerrone in a welterweight bout on 18th January at UFC 246.
And the promo opens by teasing the Irish MMA superstar's return to the octagon with footage from his previous UFC bouts.
The footage is spliced with moments that show McGregor outside of the UFC, including a face-off with Floyd Mayweather ahead of their 2017 blockbuster boxing clash.
After a minute-long tease of McGregor's return, the promo shifts its attention to Cerrone devastating his opponents inside the octagon.
And it includes 'Cowboy' calling out the Irishman and when the two also traded verbal blows at a press conference in 2015.
The UFC 246 promo has Valerie Broussard's cover of the Rolling Stones' hit song 'Paint It Black' playing in the background as it builds up the hype for McGregor and Cerrone's clash.

UFC president Dana White has confirmed that UFC could book the rematch should McGregor beat Cerrone and if Khabib defeats Tony Ferguson.
