'Cowboy' Cerrone: I'll fight anyone, teammates included

source: Pro MMA Radio

"I still am, 100 percent (Rashad's friend). Every day, I would walk in and say, 'I'm team Rashad.' It was just like that, I wear everything on my sleeve, I say how it is and I talk right to people. I would tell Jon (Jones), 'I'm team Rashad, man. That's my boy, that's my brother.' And Jones is cool man, he is a cool dude. I have no hard feelings. I go out with him and hang all the time and I train with him. It's not like I would take his training and tell Rashad, I wouldn't go that far. But he is like, 'I respect the fact that you were friends with Rashad before you met me and that you're sticking by your boy, and I respect that.'

As for me, I will fight anyone. I will fight anybody. I would fight Leonard (Garcia), and I live with him. Does that answer your question? I would fight Clay (Guida), and he will still be my boy. I mean, this is what we do, we're professionals and there is going to come a time when teammates are going to have to fight. That's just the way it goes."

Right. You need to try to keep it straight exactly what you're whining and crying about though. If you want to cry about point striking, don't talk about how that's not the Diaz brothers. It's what they're known for, throwing weak punches in volume. I would rather get tagged over and over by Nick (I'd still die, I'm not a pro-fighter), than receive JJ elbows or the beating he put on Rua.

Cerrone will say anything to grab a few extra fans. He has done well under Greg's "go get yourself some fans" system. Bones could learn a lot from this guy.

  All of the above are reasons to respect Cerrone.

I became a bigger cowboy fan after his fight with Nate. Can't wait to see him fight again

+2. In fact, had he been a point fighter he could have used those trips to take Nate down and try and hold on to him. But he didn't. He fought him and went out on his shield.
