Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone will meet tonight at their press conference prior to the UFC 246 fight.
Traditionally, there is no quiet McGregor press conference. The colorful insults, the even more colorful outfits and the occasional scrap have made them a must-see in the fights of recent weeks.
The former featherweight and lightweight champion even has a bit of history with Cerrone in front of the press, and the gap between the two goes back to a UFC press conference in 2015.
That day, McGregor described “Cowboy” as “too slow and rigid,” and added “I would break you in half” if they ever met. That day is almost here.
A bookmaker based in the USA. UU. It even offers special fees for tonight’s event: punters can say a little about how late McGregor will be, if he will have a bottle of his Whiskey Proper 12 or how many F-Bombs the Dubliner throws.

What happened the last time McGregor and Cerrone met at a press conference …
In 2015, Conor McGregor was in the process of collision with the then featherweight champion José Aldo, but he still had time to exchange comments with Donald Cerrone, and then fight in the lightweight.
McGregor told Cerrone that he would have no trouble moving and cleaning the house at 155 pounds, telling him ‘you’re stiff as a board’ and he would ‘split it in half’.
Cerrone’s answer? “You have a monster here at 45 in [Jose] Aldo about to hit your ass.
“You haven’t beaten anyone and you think you’ll reach 155 and make a statement? Come on man, sit down.
McGregor concluded the exchange with a cordial ‘Yeeehaw’ in response to Cowboy.

What are the chances of Conor McGregor dusting his old Gucci mink coat again for tonight? For about $ 30,000 reported, he would like to think that it would give him other wear.
McGregor’s presentation for that press conference before his 2016 meeting with Eddie Alvarez was inspired by heavyweight boxing champion Smokin ‘Joe Frazier, who looked almost identical to his press conference prior to Muhammad’s fight Ali in 1974.

John Kavanagh confessed that he had doubts about whether Conor would rediscover his motivation after being hit by Nurmagomedov.
Kavanagh also revealed that while the two separated after that infamous fight, their relationship is now better than ever.
“We moved away a little; I had many things in his life with his whiskey business and other things, and my team was busy incorporating many new fighters.”
“That was a natural thing, but the last few months have been fantastic. I feel like we are now tighter than ever, so I feel good.”
“It kept appearing and I was wondering if I would be able to do the type of training required because, let’s say a shovel is a shovel, I had earned a lot of money and it’s hard to run when you get up on silk underwear.
“But he did, he kept training and pushing hard and not just talking, but proving he wanted to compete at a high level again.”

In preparation for UFC 246, McGregor has made it clear that he still has hopes in the world of boxing.
His infamous fight and defeat against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 led him to a change of focus, with a lucrative boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr in August 2017.
McGregor showed heart when he was finally stopped in the tenth round, but says it’s like a rematch, or failing that, a fight against one of Mayweather’s great rivals, Manny Pacquiao.
“We’re really close to signing (with) Manny,” McGregor said. “There has also been talk of Manny’s fight. An offer was made about it, yes.
“Only not yet. Not yet. Much (one possibility).”

Sutcliffe is the man of McGregor’s past brought to this camp. The Crumlin-based boxing coach trained McGregor at age 12 at the beginning of his fight days.
McGregor had moderate success at the level of amateur boxing in Dublin before being attracted to mixed martial arts in his teens.
To help fine-tune his punch with Roddy, McGregor has brought Sutcliffe and another unconditional Crumlin Boxing Club in Bra Brady to perfect his most dangerous weapon.

Pikulskiy is the man in charge of improving McGregor’s fight. Given his reputation as a striker in each fight, he is perhaps one of the most underrated roles in the training setup, as opponents often see McGregor’s confrontation as his greatest weakness.
However, McGregor’s downing defense is stellar, as evidenced by his 2016 victory over Eddie Alvarez, the night he achieved immortality by becoming the first double UFC world champion.
That night, he expertly evaded Alvarez’s attempts to take him to the canvas before knocking out the American and taking his lightweight title.
He got rid of Khabib, the best fighter in mixed martial arts, but Pikulskiy, a Moldovan citizen with great experience, is still considered a vital gear in the McGregor machine.
