“That’s the plan. That’s what he wants to do and there’s one thing I always say: when Conor says he wants to do something if anyone is going to do it, he can. But, let’s not look past Cerrone. He’s a tricky opponent and he’s a veteran with tricks up his sleeve. But Conor going in there the way he looks now, he should do well.”
Roddy told MMA Fighting’s Eurobash podcast.
“Looking at the second fight with Nate Diaz fight, that’s what you’re going to see.”
“It’s that Conor. He’s been at this weight for a while. He’s used to training at this weight; grappling and sparring, running and doing the miles. His body knows how to move that weight around now and he knows how to move it around quickly. There’s no killing himself to make weight and there’s no limit calories in the last three weeks of camp trying to get down to weight…that’s gone. Now, he’s just focusing on his training, doing what he’s doing, looking at his opponent and breaking him down and dismantling him in the fight.”
While the Notorious is looking for a Masvidal fight, the UFC president Dana White thinks this is not a good idea as Gamebred is too big for Conor. White also recently revealed that Conor might get a Khabib rematch if he passes Cowboy.
Who do you want the Notorious to fight if he defeats Cowboy at UFC 246?
