Petr Yan’s prediction for McGregor vs Cowboy bout
The Russian top UFC bantamweight contender Petr Yan made his prediction for Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone bout which will be held tonight at UFC 246 in Las Vegas.
“MMA is very unpredictable but I know ahead of time who will win this fight. I think it will be Conor. He picked a good matchup. Cerrone will make a lot of money, McGregor will get a loud comeback. Conor is definitely a favorite to win this fight. But I am going to cheer for Cerrone, we’ve met in person before. I was surprised that he knew a lot about me, he told me that he watches my fights. I want him to win but it’s a complicated matchup for Cowboy.
How can Cerrone beat McGregor? With a lucky shot – high-kick. And then if he adds a 5 punch combo after that and lands some of it clean. That’s the only way I can see him winning. It will take a lot…”
The main card of the UFC 246 event will be shown for free on a Russian free-to-air TV network Ren TV. Petr Yan will be doing live commentary (obviously, in Russian) on this network.
