30/1 Conor McGregor to win the fight
McGregor vs Cerrone Betting Preview
All four of McGregor's pro losses have come via submissionConor McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) returns to the welterweight division for the first time since August 2016. He was stripped of his featherweight belt back in 2016 after inactivity and pursuit of a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. On his return in the UFC, he was the victim of a fourth-round submission loss to lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov on October 2018. The post-fight melee resulted in the Irish star being served a six-month suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Hence, the "Notorious" has lost three out of the last five times he’s stepped into a professional ring, and one of his wins was a controversial decision over Nate Diaz.
McGregor’s fight against Nurmagomedov showed some much-improved takedown defense. He should be able to stay out of trouble in any early grappling exchanges and return to his feet. It’s no secret Conor has freakish knockout power in his left hand and as a result, expect him to be setting plenty of traps early. The Irishman absolutely has the power to hurt his opponent every time he touches him, be it to the head, or more likely, the body. His knock-out power and Cerrone’s declining chin is a bad combination for those rooting for the American.
Cerrone will have a chance for the biggest win of his careerDonald Cerrone (36-13 MMA, 23-10 UFC) enters this fight off back-to-back losses to Ferguson and Justin Gaethje. Anyway, "Cowboy" is the winningest fighter in UFC history despite never holding a belt. He holds the UFC records for most wins, most finishes, most post-fight bonuses and most knockdowns. Plus, wins over Alexander Hernandez and Al Iaquinta showed that he has enough experience to exploit his opponents’ weaknesses
Cerrone is famed for his Muay Thai-influenced style and works his opponents to carve opportunities to unleash his brutal head kicks. One advantage the American does possess is that he is better at grappling and certainly not afraid of deploying this ability when required. He might try and even succeed on a takedown. If he can survive the first round or two, McGregor's ring rust and the additional muscle he has packed on at 170 pounds will cause the Irishman to gas. With 17 submissions to his name, you would expect Cowboy to try and finish the fight this way.
