Andrew Tate claps back at ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone: ‘Didn’t McGregor finish him pretty quick?’

In the world of combat sports and social media, American-British kickboxer Andrew Tate has gained significant attention. Recently, he addressed criticisms coming his way from none other than UFC Hall of Famer Donald Cerrone.

Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan Tate are presently awaiting trial on a number of charges. While the Romanian government continues to prepare for a trial that might take years to conclude, both men have adamantly denied the charges.

Despite facing ongoing legal issues, both Tate brothers remains vocal on social media where they discuss various topics. During a conversation with Adam22, it was revealed that Cerrone expressed disapproval of Tate’s abilities inside the ring.

In response, Andrew Tate confidently defended his career and challenged Cerrone to face him in person.

In a clip featuring Adam22 he said: “[Cerrone] pulled up some old Andrew Tate kickboxing matches and was showing me them and did a pretty good job of making the point of this guy can’t fight.”

Andrew Tate dismissed the comments made by Cerrone. He highlighted that every combatant and fan regardless of their personal fighting experience, often offers opinions about athletes’ skills.

He explained: “The thing about fighting as a sport is that everybody who watches it goes, ‘This guy can’t fight.’ Everyone at home who’s never even fought says this guy can’t fight or the other fighters say this guy can’t fight which is why as a fighter you constantly feel like you have something to prove.”

“Even if you win 100 fights in a row, there’s gonna be someone out there that says you can’t fight. I’d like to think that my record stands for itself.”

“I’ve had 88 fights. I’ve had a bunch of fights. A four-time world champion. I’ve fought a bunch of rules, including MMA, and I did my very best and I won a bunch of titles. Made a bunch of money and beat a bunch of people.”

“Of course, there’s always going to be someone who watches me and says I can’t fight. There’s a bunch of videos that say I can and there’s the odd idiot who says I can’t, but I’m very happy with where I am in my career and what I’ve achieved and I’m very confident in my abilities, so it is what it is.”

Directly addressing Donald Cerrone, Andrew Tate implied that Cerrone knew where to find him if he ever wanted to experience what Tate can do in a match.

He said: “As for Cerrone, I’ve heard of him. Didn’t McGregor finish him pretty quick? If he thinks I can’t fight, then if he wants to tell me to my face and kick my a**, he’s welcome to try. I strongly believe he will regret that decision and that’s as far as I need to take it.”
