Dana White reveals the UFC’s plans for Donald Cerrone – MMA Root



Another fight for Donald Cerrone and another loss. It’s been nothing more than a loss for “Cowboy” for the past two years, unless you count that draw / No Contest against Niko Price, who didn’t look too good for Donald either.

A 0-5-1 record would send most fighters out of the UFC, but Cerrone is a special case. He’s spent years improving when the UFC needed last-minute replacements, and he did something similar in this latest loss, staying on the card when his original opponent, Diego Sanchez, fell.

He ended up facing a younger, heavier and more dangerous opponent in Alex Morono, and Morono defeated him with 20 seconds left in the first round.

-I do not know, man. I don’t know what to answer you: ‘Is it that time?’ Cerrone said after the fight. “I have no desire. But how I feel and how I perform are two different things. Stinks. I wanted to go back to 155 pounds. These 170 guys hit hard, they’re big. But there are no excuses, man. “

“There is no way it will end like this,” Cerrone added. “I couldn’t let my legacy end like this. Buy if [I’ll] Call the boss and say, ‘Hey, it’s been a rough couple of years, but when it’s time, let me say goodbye.’ “

Well, the call was made and the boss answered. Dana White recently spoke to TSN and this is what she said about the future of “Cowboy.”

“So Cowboy, again, step up,” White said. “Diego falls out of the fight, steps up and takes a last minute replacement, co-feature event. Whatever he wants to do, he accepted this fight from Diego and they both agreed to fight at 170. He wants to go down to 155 and get another fight, and I’m going to let him do it. ”

When asked if this would be the last fight if Cerrone loses again, White simply said “Yes. Yes.”

So what do Maniacs think … who should Cerrone face at 155 for what could be his final dance?
