A UFC lightweight fight between Conor McGregor and Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone is a “done deal,” according to Joe Rogan.

McGregor is due to return to the octagon after his suspension ends in April over the carnage that ensued after his defeat to Russian lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov in October.  

Speaking on the UFC Fight Companion podcast after UFC Phoenix this weekend, Rogan said a McGregor versus Cerrone match-up was essentially done.

“Conor-Cowboy is a done deal, as far as I know,” the longtime commentator said.

UFC president Dana White has also said he wants to see McGregor take on Cerrone in his return to action.

“I’d like to see Conor fight this summer, if those two [McGregor and Cerrone] want to fight each other, they’ve both earned it,” said the UFC boss in February.

“Cowboy’s fought anybody we’ve ever put against him… we throw this young killer [Alexander] Hernandez at him, Cowboy’s the underdog, he goes in and does it the way he did it, and then Conor’s fought everybody.

“If these two want to fight, I’m down,” White added. 

I’m looking forward to seeing McGregor back in the game.
