Conor McGregor insists that there will be no bloodshed when he and ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone go to war at UFC 246

Conor McGregor has promised that blood will split when he confronts Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC 246 on Saturday, but insists it won’t be bad blood.

The ‘notorious’ fights for the first time in 15 months in Las Vegas this weekend will face off against their opponent at a final press conference in the early hours of Thursday.

The pre-fight press conferences that involved McGregor have been remembered for their colorful language, their even more colorful outfits and strange fights.

However, this was a much friendlier affair with McGregor and Cerrone laughing and smiling during their exchanges with the press gathered, with the Dubliner even interrupting a question to complement ‘Cowboy’ in his snake skin suit.

McGregor was a much more relaxed figure than the one shown in his October 2018 meeting with the bitter enemy Khabib Nurmagomedov, or the one who joined Floyd Mayweather on a press tour around the world last summer.

“I haven’t changed much, I’m who I am,” McGregor said. “Okay, he’s an opponent and different circumstances, but I’m excited to be here. I have a solid opponent, a veteran of the game. I’m in a good place and happy to be here.”

“Blood will be shed on January 18, but it won’t be bad blood.”

While there was a lot of respect, McGregor’s confidence in his own abilities remains as true as ever, promising to knock Cerrone out and embark on his most successful year so far.

“I feel I have the advantage of speed. I feel confident and I am totally committed. I made this game what it is. I will remind everyone of that.”

“I can read Donald as a children’s book.”
