Donald Cerrone is a warrior, a scared, unable to sleep, on edge warrior.
I absolutely love when fighters are open and honest about themselves. Most of them put up a false sense of bravado and act unphased about fighting another human being in a locked cage, but Donald Cerrone is real about it. He spoke prior to Sunday’s fight with Yancy Medeiros about it, and it’s pretty amazing to hear.

I have so much respect for Donald Cerrone he really puts you there in the moment with him. He scored a much-needed TKO victory in the closing moments of the first round Sunday night. The victory snapped a series of losses. He fights anyone, anywhere and at any time. He’s a massive fan favorite because he’s willing to lay it on the line, and he’s honest with his fans. ‘
The fight Sunday night was not only exciting and action-packed, but it was really refreshing. It was nice to see two professional fighters enter the cage without the fake drama and manufactured bad blood. It was just two guys, with respect and admiration for each other doing their job. After the fight, Yancy Medeiros jumped the fence to embrace Cowboy’s grandmother which was amazing as well.
I’ve always been a fan of Donald Cerrone’s, and now I’m a lifelong fan of Yancy Medeiros as well.
