Donald Cerrone is not considering retirement following his loss to Alex Morono at UFC Vegas 26. Moreover, the fight was Cerrone’s fifth loss in his past six fights, casting doubts over his future in the promotion.
Originally, Donald was going to be fighting Diego Sanchez. However, due to complications, Alex Morono stepped in as a late replacement. Ultimately, Donald decided to remain on the card only to lose to Morono via KO/TKO in the first round.
“Other than Conor, Cowboy is the most iconic and recognizable MMA fighter, I think on planet Earth”. In his post-fight conference, Alex Morono gave a lot of respect to Cerrone and confessed his liking for the fighter. “I hope he goes to (1)55 like he wanted to, and they give him a good (retirement) fight”.
Previously, Donald spoke about how he and his team were preparing to make a return to 155lbs. However, the UFC asked Cerrone to fight Diego Sanchez at 170 lbs. Following Sanchez’s exit from the UFC, Alex Morono stepped in as a replacement, at the same weight class.
Cerrone struggled in the latter days of his time in the lightweight division. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out for him at welterweight either as he found all the fighters there were ‘big for him’. Hence, he was plotting a return to 155lbs.
Retirement Calling for Donald Cerrone?
Donald refuses to concede that he’s already fought his last fight after his defeat to Alex Morono. In fact, Cowboy promises to announce his retirement before he sets foot in the Octagon for his last fight. Moreover, but he refuses to let a first-round TKO be the final chapter of his illustrious UFC career.
“Absolutely not (my last fight). No way. I’ll never go out like this,” Cerrone said. “I will, 100 percent I’ll know (it’s the last fight) and I’ll come in and sh*t hopefully I go in whipping ass right off. There’s no way I’d end like this. I couldn’t let my legacy end like this.”
A former lightweight title contender, Cowboy is now winless in his last six fights. Additionally, he is 0-5 during that stretch, with one no-contest against Niko Price. Unfortunately, he’s also been knocked out in four of those five defeats.
