The fight will be McGregor’s first in the promotion since his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in their lightweight title clash in October 2018 at UFC 229.

For Cowboy, it will be his fifth fight in the calendar year as he looks to bounce back from two straight defeats to Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje in the lightweight division.

Ahead of the fight, McGregor has been reflecting on his time away from MMA.

In a wide-ranging interview with Ariel Helwani, the Irish fighter admitted that he may have gone too far in his trash-talking towards Khabib in 2018.

He also said that he still hasn’t given up his boxing ambitions and would like to claim a world title in the sport.

However, McGregor stated that his focus is entirely on MMA and his upcoming bout with Cerrone.

“Yeah, I’m feeling really good. I’m enjoying my training. I listened to myself, what I needed to do in my training setup and outside of the gym, and I executed them.

“I followed what I said to myself that I needed to do. And it’s given me energy. It’s given me focus. And I’m happy now. I’m enjoying my training. I feel I’m mature.

“I’ve come full circle. I’ve experienced everything in this business. And I have a solid team of masters, tacticians behind me that I discuss my feelings and my thoughts with them, and we brainstorm.”
