LAS VEGAS, NV - OCTOBER 06: Khabib Nurmagomedov of Russia (R) and Conor McGregor of Ireland (L) start their UFC lightweight championship bout during the UFC 229 event inside T-Mobile Arena on October 6, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)
Conor McGregor was last seen at UFC 229 suffering a submission loss to the unbeaten Khabib Nurmagomedov who won the UFC Lightweight Championship in that fight.  McGregor put on a couple of classic fights against Nate Diaz in 2016. Diaz won the first bout before McGregor would win via majority decision. Conor McGregor is the $1.42 favourite against Donald Cerrone who is $2.85. 

Nicknamed Cowboy, Cerrone has lost his past two fights; he was beaten by Tony Ferguson at UFC 238 via TKO due to a doctor stoppage. He would then lose via TKO to Justin Gaethje.

Entering this fight, McGregor boasts a 21-4 record, while Cowboy has a 36-13-1NC record. 

McGregor is $1.70 to win via KO/TKO. Of his 21 wins, 18 have come by way of knockout.

Verdict

There is no doubt that McGregor will be out to make a statement. The last thing the Irishman will want to do at his return is to suffer a loss. He will be fresh having not fought in 2019 while Cowboy has fought four times for the year.

McGregor’s list of victims is impressive with knockout wins over Dustin Poirier in 2014 and Jose Aldo and Eddie Alvarez in 2016. He also beat Max Holloway via unanimous decision in 2013.

Despite giving away a height advantage in this fight, McGregor will have a slight one-inch reach advantage. McGregor can have a successful return to the Octagon on January 19 with a KO/TKO victory over Cowboy.
