Conor McGregor agrees to a fight against Donald Cerrone
The Notorious vs The Cowboy is on the cards.
Given the fact that Conor McGregor is a massive payday for any fighter, the Dubliner is used to being called out in press conferences but he usually just diverts these requests in his trademark manner.
This being said, it appears that 'The Notorious' is giving serious consideration to Donald Cerrone's request as McGregor confirmed a fight against the veteran of the UFC's lightweight division.
During UFC Brooklyn, 'The Cowboy' squared off against Alex Hernandez and he put on a masterclass in striking. Ultimately, the fight was stopped in the second round after a perfectly executed head kick.

After calling out McGregor for the last few months, Cerrone used his post-fight interview to continue to talk up a potential fight against the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion.
"This is the fight the UFC and I both wanted. Now I want top five and I even want Conor if he'll agree to it. Conor would be awesome. Anyone in the top five. I'm coming for the belt. 'Cowboy' is back, I'm on a roll and here I come," said Cerrone.
Well, it appears that McGregor was listening and that he was impressed by what he saw in the Octagon.
McGregor vs Cerrone could be the fight that sees the return of the controversial Dubliner to the cage.
Here's what McGregor said on Twitter.
For a fight like that Donald, I’ll fight you.
