Very cool stuff here from Budweiser for Cerrone, who will be in line for the biggest payday of his career when he takes on McGregor at UFC 246. After a decade of being a company man for the UFC, the promotion has rewarded him with the biggest fight possible against a legitimate superstar in McGregor, who is making his long-awaited comeback after over a year away from the Octagon.
Cerrone had an up-and-down 2019. He started off the year with a bang when he knocked out rising prospect Alexander Hernandez then defeated Al Iaquinta in an upset, but he then suffered back-to-back TKO losses to Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje to finish out the year. McGregor personally hand-selected Cerrone as his opponent for his comeback fight, and the two are now destined to put on one of the most exciting fights of the year in the first month of the new decade.
