A victorious McGregor received an embrace from Grandma Cerrone after the bout and McGregor says that Grandma Cerrone a phenomenal woman.
“She’s just a phenomenal woman, that lady,” McGregor told MMA Junkie. “She’s there from the first fight of the night to the final fight of the night. Even after the bout, she came over and showed me respect. I showed her respect, and it was great to finally meet her. You see her. She’s a prevalent part of the game, isn’t she? Donald’s fought so much, and that lady is there from the start of the fight to the finish. What a lady. What a man she’s raised. I’m very, very, very honored to share the cage with Donald. I’m very proud. He’s a good man, and he’s got good people behind him. Much respect.”
Grandma Cerrone has been a fixture at many UFC events over the years and has embraced a lot of the competitors who have fought her grandson in the past.
