Donald Cerrone says he’s looking for an early night against Conor McGregor should they end up facing off. Cerrone spoke with fans at a Q&A conference on Friday about the possible fight, with some highlights below (per MMAjunkie):

On the possible fight: “This is a fight that I think everyone is going to love. I’m very excited to be involved with him. How am I going to beat him? I’m going to go out there and give it hell like I always do.

On when the fight could take place: “It’s definitely going to be this year, this summer I think. But hey, Irish, Australian, American – (expletive) root for whoever you want. I love it man. Boo, cheer.”

If the matchup does materialize as Cerrone believes it will, he said he’s not going to make any secrets about his approach. With the most wins (22) and finishes (16) in UFC history, there aren’t many secrets about Cerrone’s style at this point. That matters not to him, though.

On his prediction for the fight: “(My prediction is a) second-round head kick (knockout).”
