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.

UFC 246’s main event between Cowboy and McGregor has been years in the making. Ever since the UFC Go Big press conference in 2015, fans around the globe have been waiting for these two to square off. Because of the career trajectory of both fighters, the match hadn’t materialized until now. 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.
