Donald Cerrone Warns Conor McGregor “You Can’t be Just Calling Out 170-Pounders”
By FCF Staff
Speculation continues as to whether Conor McGregor might take a look at welterweight, if he secures the UFC’s lightweight title, but Donald Cerrone has issued a warning to the star.
McGregor is scheduled to fight lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos on March 5th, while Cerrone is booked to take on Alex Oliveira on February 21st. That fight will be contested at 170.
Recently Cerrone was asked about his plans for the short-term future, and the lightweight contender had this to say (quote via MMA Junkie.com):
“I don’t even care; whatever they want to do,” Cerrone said. “It makes no difference to me. I’m not going to say no. But I’m not going to get out there and say, ‘My next fight, title fight. It’s my dream.’ I don’t care. I don’t give a sh-t. Give me Conor McGregor. I’ll fight that p-ssy. Other than that, I don’t care. Tell that dude to slow his f-cking roll. You can’t be just calling out 170-pounders. So, whatever. Enough of him…”
Cerrone and McGregor have exchanged words for months now, after the featherweight champ relayed his plans to move to 155.
The February 21st, UFC Fight Night 83 card will take place in Pittsburgh.
