One of the most popular fighters in UFC, Donald Cerrone has decided to part ways with his striking coach Brandon Gibson of Jacksonwink MMA. Cerrone tied up with Gibson back in 2016 when he moved up to the Welterweight division.

For his first few fights, Cerrone looked good at Welterweight division winning his first four fights, three of which earned Performance of the Night bonuses. But his winning streak was ended in January of last year when he was stopped by Jorge Masvidal in the main event of UFC on Fox 23. Since then he has since gone 1-3 in his last four outings.

As confirmed in a report by ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, Cowboy recently parted ways with Gibson.

When Donald Cerrone fights Mike Perry on Nov. 10 he won’t have one of the most respected coaches in MMA in his corner. Following Cerrone’s unanimous decision loss to Leon Edwards last month, he parted ways with striking coach Brandon Gibson, ESPN recently confirmed with Gibson. Gibson described the parting ways as mutual. “I wish ‘Cowboy’ and his team all the best moving forward,” he said. “I think a new look and direction will be good for him.”

Gibson has been in Cerrone’s corner for nine straight fights, dating back to when Cerrone beat Alex Oliveira in February 2016. Cerrone will continue to have Greg Jackson in his corner from the JacksonWink camp.

Donald Cerrone’s next appearance is against Mike Perry at UFC Fight Night: Denver on November 10th.
