    “I can read Donald,” McGregor told reporters, including MMA Junkie, at the press conference at The Palms Casino & Resort. “I like him and all (he’s a good guy), but I can read Donald like a children’s book if we’re being honest.

    He’s a good fighter. He’s got some good tricks up his sleeve. I know the tricks he has. I know what he’s planning and what he hopes to achieve. But we’re well prepared.”

    “I certainly feel like I have the speed advantage. I’m feeling confident going in there. I’m feeling confident against anyone. A full[y] prepared, fully committed Conor McGregor – there’s no one that can touch me.”

    Cowboy compared himself to a stick in the mud at the press conference so I guess pretty predictable

    I think conor said Cowboy has a good head kick so he will likely look out for that

    Wasn’t this more of a insight to Conors reading limitations?

    I think that children’s books are about where Conor’s reading ability is at. What he is saying here is that it will be a relatively even main event.

    A children’s book and a magazine are the only two things that Conan has likely read...

    Of course he can. This is basically Conor vs Dennis Siver 2.
    Let's not kid ourselves, Cowboy is way past his prime and has never done well in big fights. Slow starter.

    I also don't think Cerrone himself really wants or expects to win the fight. That makes it almost impossible for him to win.

    Predictable, meaning Cowboy has 50 fights for Conor to study ? Ok

    Predictable that Cowboy has at his disposal, excellence with all 8 striking points, takedowns that worked at Welterweight for him pretty effectively, and a dangerous wrestling game from the top and a deadly Jujutsu game from the bottom.... Ok That's a lot to think about...

    Conor has a fast and practically perfect left hand backed by good footwork.... Nothing more...…. Ultimately predictable.

    The left is dynamite and can end Cowboy... But making this fight sound simple is exactly what Cowboy wants Conor to think.

    He is very predictable until he is not, and that is when he KO's guys with head kicks and sick combinations. Cowboy's greatest asset is in his deception and how he can change timing from the first to second rounds. He is the type of fighter that generally loses until her wins.
