LAS VEGAS — Saturday’s UFC 246 welterweight bout against UFC superstar Conor McGregor will be Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone’s 50th professional fight Fifty. Five-oh. In other words, it ain’t the man’s first rodeo.

Now of course, fighting McGregor in the main event of a Las Vegas pay-per-view isn’t your average fight. And if there has been one knock on Cerrone — the winningest fighter in UFC history — it’s that he tends to start slowly and doesn’t always show up in the biggest moments.

Cerrone can’t afford either of those two things to happen on Saturday.But as fight night approaches, Cowboy looks anything but stressed. He has rented a home in a Las Vegas neighborhood, where his crew of training partners and coaches descended last Saturday. He has plans to ride bikes and play a little blackjack — at home, where he can be the dealer and serve as the house.

What else is going through Cowboy’s mind ahead of one of the biggest fights of his career? ESPN sat down with him to find out.Editor’s note: Answers have been edited for length and clarity.

All the fun and the extra activities I do just give my brain a break from thinking about the fight all day, all night. We get on those bikes and you’re just cruising. We get on the lake and we just play. We get on the snowmobiles and we just, like, reset. Because it’s constant grind and training and thinking. You have to — I have to, anyways — get my mind a break. But, yeah, I don’t overlook Conor. I don’t look past Conor. I don’t not think about it. Like, no, this is just something I do.

So, I’m 100% all-in for this camp. Training and playing.Just good energy on my camp. Like, good morale. Joking around, playing around. Like there wasn’t any bad times. So, to me that was more important than the energy for the Conor fight. But I mean, like I said, this is the fight everyone wants to see.

Mindset on fighting McGregorI’ve been in this game a long time, man. So, everyone wants to talk about this is the biggest fight, but every fight’s the biggest fight, right? The fight I just had [against Tony Ferguson in June] was the title eliminator fight. That was the biggest fight. Now this Conor thing, it’s the biggest. But this one really is. This is like a lot of eyes on this one. Like, mentality-wise, it’s just another fight in Vegas for me. Same crazy business as we always do.

I wanted to cut weight. I’m not a big ‘70-pounder, so it’s not like I’m going to be in there just dwarfing this dude. Everyone thinks, oh, he’s a ‘45er, he’s going to fight you at ’70. Like, nah, we’re probably going to be close to the same weight, you know?

We’re allowed to eat and enjoy this week. Maybe he didn’t want to go through all the bulls — — of struggling [to make lightweight] and maybe he wanted it easy, as well. I mean, he’s the one who said ’70. I was like, OK. I wasn’t rallying for it.

There’s going to be some funny s — — he says. So, I’m excited. I have no idea what he’s going to say. He’s a master with words and does very well at selling fights, so it should be entertaining.

Conor’s amazing with words, and he likes to lay his plans out there, you know what I mean? So, I’m not taken aback or put aside by him thinking he’s overlooking me. That’s just who he is, that’s what he is. If there’s anybody else, it’d be an insult, but, hey man, I’m glad he’s back. He did so much for the sport, he could still make all those fights happen, even after an ass-whoopin’ from me. That’s cool.
