Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico has always been the training ground for UFC veteran and fan favourite Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone. However, as of late there are some reports regarding tension flaring between Cerrone and the staff.
However if his next opponent ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry, who also happens to be training at Jackson-Wink is to be believed, then things are certainly getting more serious.
“I think he’s moving back to Denver. And like, none of this going on is the reason why. Like, he was just looking for a reason to act like it was something to push him to move over there.”
“I don’t know him that well, but that’s the way it sounds to me,” he continued. “If he’s going to Denver now, cause he’s wanted to for some time… and he’s going ahead and making that move because he ain’t got a bunch of people kissing his ass over here no more.”
Perry also claimed that Cerrone even tried to prevent coaches from training him for their upcoming fight.
“I haven’t seen it first hand (the tension brewing),” Perry said. “But I heard that he physically came here and asked them not to train me. For them not to allow me to come into the gym and to show him some respect even though… he hasn’t done anything for this gym in quite some time.”
