Donald Cerrone took a beating against Conor McGregor this past Saturday, suffering a broken nose and ‘mild’ orbital fracture in the UFC 246 main event at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, per the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

Cerrone, who suffered his third straight TKO/KO at UFC 246, could be medically suspended for up to six months unless cleared by a maxillofacial surgeon. The UFC veteran also suffered facial fractures in his knockout loss to Justin Gaethje at UFC Fight Night 158.

According to MMA Fighting, Cerrone’s manager, Josh Jones, says ‘Cowboy’ suffered no serious damage to his brain at UFC 246, as his CT scan came back negative.

Take a look at the full list of UFC…

Holy shit that's a lot of damage in 30 seconds, when only 3-4 punches really landed. Majority of it done by shoulder strikes. Fucking crazy.

This could be a great thread for the Conor doubters to apologize.
Cowboy was on a 2 fight losing streak (both knockout losses) and has been ko'd 4 times in the last 3 years before the Conor fight.

How much of a pat on the back do you think he deserves?

He threw a series of strikes he's never used before. He used his time off to really improve and round out his striking game. He absolutely deserves recognition for that.

It should be a permanent suspension. Guy has been KOd 5 times in the last 3 years on top of all the massive amounts of damage he has sustained over his career.

Someone is going to need to save this guy from himself. There's no reason to wait.

he tried the straight left to knee against Khabib but Khabib ate it and took him down I tink
but those shoulder strikes were totally new and unexpected...I don't think anybody expected him to embrace a clinch at all

props to conor

looks like the swelling is on donald's left cheekbone
probably the orbital fracture

question is was it the opening flying knee or did one of those shoulders slip across to dons left cheekbone

Nah, man. I've always said Kavanagh is one of the best coaches in MMA and they came in with a gameplan no one saw coming. Conor looked great, hats off to the both of them.
Let's calm down on 'one of the best coaches in MMA'. He has worked with a total of one champion fighter, who basically runs his own camps anyway.

If Edmen Shahbayzen keeps rising, I would be comfortable in declaring Edmond Taverdyan a better coach.
