Donald Cerrone is preparing for his upcoming fight with Alex Morono. Moreover, Morono will be replacing Diego Sanchez, who was Cerrone’s original opponent.
Whilst Donald and Diego were going to fight at 155lbs, the fight with Morono will happen at 170lbs. For the most part, Donald is already at the required weight and won’t be needing any extra time to prepare. Additionally, Donald has enlisted some extra help for the fight.
“Doing that grappling training with RDA was like the best thing I ever did. It like, really got me excited into Jiu-Jitsu again”. Donald reveals that training with Dos Anjos made him fall back in love with Jiu-Jitsu. As such, ‘Cowboy’ is excited to take to the Octagon after his reignited love for the art.
Previously, RDA and Cerrone also went head to head in a grappling match at Submission Underground. Surprisingly, Donald was able to pull off the submission win, twice! “I said, let’s make sure. So, we ran it right back”.
Additionally, the pair have also fought in the UFC on two occasions. Unfortunately, Cerrone lost on both instances via KO/TKO and ‘U-Dec’. Besides their fights back in 2015 and 2013, it seems that the two have a good relationship.
A Look At Donald Cerrone Vs. Alex Morono
Donald Cerrone (36-15, 2 NC) has the most wins (23) and submissions (17) in UFC history. ‘Cowboy’, who fights out of New Mexico, last fought in September. His fight with Niko Price was a split draw, later overturned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) to a no-contest when Price tested positive for marijuana.
Cerrone, 38, is looking for his first win since 2019, a winless stretch of five bouts. ‘Cowboy” struggled in the latter days of his time in the lightweight division. His last four fights in the division were all losses to the likes of McGregor, Gaethje, Ferguson, and Pettis.
On the other hand, Morono (18-7, 1 NC) is coming off a ‘U-Dec’ loss to Anthony Pettis in December. The up-and-coming fighter from Texas has won four out of his past six fights. Alex, 30, has a 7-4 (1 NC) record in the UFC. Hence, Morono will be wanting to make a name for himself in the division.
