Donald Cerrone Teases Fight With Conor McGregor In Booze Photo

Could Donald Cerrone and Conor McGregor be set to face off inside of the Octagon? Well, if “Cowboy” gets his way, we could see him taking on the former two-division UFC champion over the summer.

Cerrone had previously expressed his interest in a fight with McGregor and now he is teasing the potential bout.

In a clever booze photo posted to social media late Wednesday, February 27, Cerrone teased the bout by lining up a bottle of his beloved Budweiser next to McGregor’s Proper 12 whiskey. Cerrone even proposed a date for the potential fight.

“@budweiser vs @properwhiskey 🇺🇸 🇮🇪 July 6th,” he captioned the photo.

The UFC’s July 6 event, expected to be UFC 239, will be part of International Fight Week in Las Vegas.

Cerrone requested a fight with McGregor after his successful return to the lightweight division. Cerrone defeated Alexander Hernandez via second-round TKO at the UFC’s debut on ESPN+ in Brooklyn, New York.

“The old man has still got it. This is the fight that the UFC wanted,” Cerrone said, via ESPN.com’s Greg Rosenstein. “I wanted [a] Top Five [opponent]. I want Conor if he’ll agree to it. I’m coming for a belt. Cowboy is back.”

McGregor has previously expressed his own interest in the fight.

For a fight like that Donald, I’ll fight you.
Congratulations.
