The stage is set for Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone’s biggest fight in his life, but a new video released by the UFC shows what could be a potential injury.

Thirty-three seconds into a video that UFC posted shows Cerrone walking with what can be perceived as a limp. Later in the video, however, it seems like his limp is alleviated. After the video was posted, there was a lot of chatter online about Cerrone having an injured leg.

Here is the UFC 246 Embedded: Vlog Series – Episode 2.

Both fighters are coming off losses, and although this fight is taking place at welterweight, there are lightweight consequences.

McGregor is ranked number four in the UFC lightweight division, and Cowboy is ranked number five. It’s on record that McGregor chose welterweight since he didn’t want to do the weight cut. Whichever fighter wins will gain more stock in the lightweight division.
