The UFC have released a new video which shows what Conor McGregor said to Donald Cerrone immediately after referee Herb Dean called a stop to the fight at UFC 246.
In the buildup to the fight, there was nothing but respect shown between the two fighters and this continued immediately after the fight when McGregor embraced his fallen opponent on the canvass.
“I love you, Donald.
“Those shoulder shots broke it, eh?”
Later, McGregor also says “great job” to Cerrone before hugging Cerrone’s grandmother and outlining how much respect he has for her.

That win over Cerrone looks to have opened plenty of doors for McGregor who will now be planning who he will fight next.
A rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov is the ultimate goal but Khabib and Tony Ferguson are set to fight in April, McGregor may focus his attention on other potential opponents such as Justin Gaethje or Jorge Masvidal.
