A fight between Conor McGregor and Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone is close to happening, UFC commentator Joe Rogan said while doing a fight companion for UFC's card on ESPN on Sunday. Rogan said the fight was "a done deal, as far as I know."

McGregor has not fought since his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018 at UFC 229. McGregor was handed a six-month suspension after a post-match fight with Nurmagomedov's team. The suspension is retroactive to October.

Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone is fresh off a win over Alex Hernandez last month. He has won three of his last four fights and is 35-11 in his career thus far. Cerrone hinted at a fight for the 155 interim title on his Instagram page earlier this month.

McGregor accepted the call out and also talked up a potential fight on social media after Cerrone's TKO win over Hernandez. 

All signs would point to a potential fight sometime in 2019.
