After his impressive return to the division, Cowboy called out fellow lightweight contender Conor McGregor.
The former “Champ Champ” responded to the call out and agreed to fight the living UFC legend. McGregor even congratulated Cerrone on the win.
For a fight like that Donald, I’ll fight you.

It looks like the ball is in UFC President Dana White’s court to set the fight up. Watching these two stand and trade monster punches would be entertaining for sure.
