McGregor has also expressed an interest in taking over the UFC welterweight world champion Kamaru Usman after his decision to return at 170 pounds, which he is more comfortable for Cerrone. I just want to focus on my training and keep myself sharp.
"I will have a good, solid camp with no weight loss at 170, a good fight".
Conor has bulked up to the Cowboy struggle - he battled Khabib in 155 pounds back in October 2018.
Conor McGregor believes Donald Cerrone looks better at 170 pounds, but claims he can beat his UFC 246 opponent at any weight, even if he had the flu. He enjoys predicting how his fights will go, and there have been many times when he has been right. However, as history has it, McGregor was stripped of both the featherweight and lightweight titles due to inactivity.
He added: "I'm not done with 155 yet, I couldn't make this fight a problem, but I just want to start over and let the fight play as it is and open up all my possibilities".
Since then, McGregor has been defeated in successive bouts by Floyd Mayweather (in their highly lucrative boxing match more than two years ago) and by Nurmagomedov - the latter of which, coupled with his recent inactivity, has seen his position plummet in the recently-released official UFC rankings.
"I and Donald had a story and I said I was going to fight him", he said to The Mac Life.
This time around, McGregor doesn't need to manufacture animosity and produce pre-fight theatrics.
McGregor received an incredible £ 76million for this crossover fight he lost. "I'm happy to come back and have my comeback fight in the beginning of my season against Donald, and I look forward to it", he said.
"You understand what I'm saying?" Early on Sunday morning, McGregor will set foot inside the cage for the first time in well over a year. I know Donald is a good fighter, he has great records, most fights, most headbuttons, most fights, most rounds.
