After all, the Nevada State Athletic Commission delivered its verdict on the controversial aftermath of UFC 229 and handed the 30-year-old Russian fighter a nine-month suspension and a $500,000 (£380,950) fine.
Nurmagomedov was furious his team-mates were punished with fines and bans, and declared he would not fight again until the UFC return to Madison Square Garden in November.
"It's definitely gonna be this year", Cerrone said.
Cerrone wrote on his Twitter account that it looks like the two will fight for an interim UFC Lightweight belt this summer once McGregor's suspension has been served for his part in a post-fight melee with Khabib Nurmagomedov following UFC 229 last October.
Of course, Whittaker or Silva could derail those plans with a victory, but UFC President Dana White agrees it would be a massive title bout for the region.
Speaking with ESPN's Brett Okamoto, White was asked about Nurmagomedov's intentions and whether they may create the need for an interim title at 155. "It probably would. We'll see how it plays out", said White.

"It was interesting for me how he would sit there [amid so many people]", Nurmagomedov said.
"I'm not thinking that far ahead", Whittaker said. He hasn't said that to me, so when I hear these things that come back from reporters or fans or whatever, "Oh I heard this and that", I haven't heard that.
"It could be between [Dustin] Poirier and [Tony] Ferguson". "This summer, I think, right?"
