We wanted him back, and that’ll happen January 18 in Las Vegas.

While I like Cerrone, I hope McGregor crushes him. Again, I really like Cowboy. The man is a respectable dude, he fights like hell, and he’s an all-class guy.

However, we like McGregor back at the top. We need him crushing souls, trash talking, and everything that comes with that territory.

Go, Conor, go!
