McGregor seemed to hint that he was ready for such a fight when he responded to a callout from Cerrone following Cowboy’s win at UFC Brooklyn last month.
Previously, McGregor seemed to very carefully pick and choose his fights and only partake in premium matchups for top pay. Now he has a new six-fight contract to fulfill, which makes it more likely for him to take on fighters like Cerrone. Details about where and when such a fight would take place are not yet known.
