UFC 257 is just around the corner with ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor making his much-awaited comeback inside the Octagon against Dustin Poirier. Conor is coming in this fight with a 40 seconds knockout win against Donald Cerrone.
The UFC two-division champion Daniel Cormier believes that Cowboy’s loss is due to the hype surrounding Conor McGregor. During his recent interview, Cormier shared his thoughts about what happened in the Cowboy fight.
Cormier says, “The reality is, Donald Cerrone of the old would never have lost to Conor McGregor in 40 seconds, there was a time when Donald Cerrone said he was too small to fight at lightweight. He beat him up at welterweight.”
“Even for a longtime veteran like ‘Cowboy’, the appeal of Conor McGregor got to him. “You’ve got to be talking about ‘Cowboy’ because I don’t think the guys that he’s going to fight going forward will ever feel like, ‘Oh, the victory is already had,”
“I’m in here with Conor McGregor.’ Because when you’re in there with Conor, he’s trying to beat you. He ain’t trying to let you win. He’s trying to knock your head off.”
