UFC Fight Night 132 in Singapore featured an interesting welterweight main event as veteran Donald Cerrone took on upcoming prospect Leon Edwards.
In a back and forth battle, Cerrone suffered a unanimous decision loss to Edwards. The loss marks Cerrone’s fourth in his last five fights. Prior to this downfall he has never even lost back-to-back fights. However with his back against the wall Cowboy, 35, doesn’t feel the loss hurt his brand in any significant manner.
“I don’t think I lost any stock,” Cerrone told reporters at the UFC Fight Night 132 post-fight press conference. “I love my job more than any of you can ever imagine. I love getting in there and fighting, so winning and losing is part of this game. Of course it sucks. I only got half my check, but hey, I had fun. I really did. I had a good time.”
Cowboy gave all the respect to Edwards for getting the job done however he is looking up to future and has no intention of hanging up his gloves as of now.
“He went out there and got the unanimous decision, five rounds, good for him,” Cerrone said. “Congratulations. I’m still looking to fight two more times this year, so if there’s anybody out there looking to fight ‘Cowboy,’ the old dog, give me a call and we can set this up.”
“I’m going to go until UFC says, ”’Cowboy,’ enough, bro. Enough, enough, enough,’” Cerrone said. “(I want to fight) at least five more years, definitely. At least. Until the UFC says, ‘No more.’”
“I’m home on the first bird,” Cerrone said. “My wife’s having a baby, man. It’s time to get home. She’s holding it, we’re going to have a C-section as soon as I get home. He’s nine-and-a-half pounds right now. Literally I land, we go to the hospital, and here he comes.”
