Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone will fight anyone, anywhere, anytime. He is confident about his fighting abilities and according to him, he will fight anyone. The Cowboy even went to say that he would even fight Khabib Nurmagomedov. Someone, who not a lot of fighters want to face right now.
“There’s a guy that everyone is saying they’re scared to fight, so I’ll go ahead and step up; I don’t mind: that Khabib dude,” Cerrone said. “Bring his ass on, too. I don’t care.
“Who, when, that doesn’t matter. Chasing that belt, that’s the overall goal for sure. But like I said, I just want to fight. I know Michael Johnson just got hurt. I’ll gladly 10 days from now go fight Josh Thomson, no problem. Just load up the RV, take off and go.”
“I want to know when I’m fighting people say, ‘I’m buying that pay-per-view. I’m pulling off the road, we’re finding a bar because I know this fight is going down,’” Cerrone said. “That’s what I want. That’s the only legacy I care about. I want people to know I fought my ass off and gave everything I had.”
