“Cowboy” was seen walking with what appeared to be a limp during an episode of UFC Embedded, but Cerrone says there is nothing to worry about on the injury front.
“I knew that was going to come up. People are good. Put a little limp, what if I was walking with a drawl? Or maybe I stepped on a Lego? I got a kid now. No, I’m good. No, I’m fine. I just kicked a pad funny, it was just a funny nothing, you know,” Cerrone said during UFC 246 media day (via Fernando Quiles Jr. of MMA News).
UFC President Dana White recently revealed that the UFC doctor said that McGregor was in great shape ahead of UFC 246, so both fighters seem like they are in top physical condition heading into this weekends card. Both fighters will also be looking to get back on track at UFC 246, as McGregor hasn’t won a bout in over three years and Cerrone is riding a two fight losing streak.
UFC 246 takes place on Saturday, January 18 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
