Darren Till says Conor McGregor fight may be ‘too much’ for Cowboy

New, 2 comments

Darren Till is not confident that Donald Cerrone can thrive under the pressures of fighting MMA megastar Conor McGregor.

Darren Till concedes that Donald Cerrone has done just about everything in MMA, but he predicts a headlining fight against Conor McGregor may be “too much” pressure for ‘Cowboy’.

Till took to Twitter on Friday and shared his analysis of the UFC 246 main event.

“I’ve got Conor first-round TKO, feel like the occasion may just be too much for Cowboy,” Till wrote. “But that’s just my opinion, Cowboy’s been around a lot longer than me and knows a hell of a lot more.”

“I cannot f—king wait for Conor x Cowboy,” the top-ranked middleweight exclaimed. “Feels like the old Conor is back. Both are right up for this. ‘Cowboy’’s camp have more to be concerned with than just Conor’s left hand.”

UFC 246 takes place at T-Mobile arena on Jan. 18. Other key fights include Holly Holm vs. Raquel Pennington and Anthony Pettis vs. Carlos Diego Ferreira.
