Donald ‘Cowyboy’ Cerrone Sets Up Possible Conor McGregor Ireland Fight By Brutally KO'ing Alex Hernandez

The UFC star Conor McGregor struck up a relationship with the Dallas Cowboys NFL franchise while on a promotional tour for his whiskey brand and now he might face a real life cowboy in the Octagon.

Lightweight veteran Donald ‘Cowyboy’ Cerrone rolled back the years to stop Alex Hernandez in Brooklyn to put everything in place for a tilt at one of the big names in the division.

"This is the fight the UFC and I both wanted. Now I want top five and I even want Conor if he'll agree to it," Cerrone said after the bout.

"Conor would be awesome. Anyone in the top five. I'm coming for the belt. 'Cowboy' is back, I'm on a roll and here I come."

His call was answered by the Irishman in absentia. He took to Twitter to say the following:

“For a fight like that Donald, I’ll fight you. Congratulations.”

Cerrone himself raised the possibility of the fight taking place in the Irishman’s home country, something which McGregor himself has publicly longed for.

Promotional supremo Dana White was non-committal in his post-fight presser after the first UFC card to be broadcast on ESPN in a new partnership.

“If those guys want that (fight) and fans want to see it, that’s what I do," White said.

“We’ll see what happens. Don’t run out there and say that’s the fight I’m making. I don’t know what I’m gonna do. But I like the fact that two of these guys that are complete dogs and fight anybody – are willing to fight anybody – want to fight each other; that’s fun.”
