In a story first reported by Robbie Fox of Barstool as well as the Irish Mirror and ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, McGregor has been sent a contract to fight Cerrone for a fight in 2019 but is awaiting the results of his issues with the Nevada Athletic Commission before he signs.

McGregor is still under suspension due to the post-fight brawl between his team and Khabib Nurmagomedov’s team following Nurmagomedov’s 4th round victory at UFC 229 in October.

“There is someone, they already came up and told me,” he revealed with a grin. “There’s your clickbait. They told me the who for once in my life first. 155. It’s very exciting. Guy’s very exciting. You’ll like it. You’ll all like it,” said Cerrone after his submission win over Mike Perry at UFC’s 25th anniversary event in Denver on Saturday.
