Cerrone accepted UFC 126 bout without knowing opponent
When the UFC asked Donald Cerrone if he wanted to fight Feb. 5 at UFC 126, he said yes. He didn’t know whom he would be fighting, but that didn’t matter.
“I didn’t care,” Cerrone said recently on the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show. “It’s good to get in there and get after it. As far as not being ready or being ready, I stay ready. … I wasn’t really concerned who I was fighting as long as I just get in there and fight.”
Cerrone will be taking on Paul Kelly in a lightweight matchup.
“The dude likes to go in there and throw down, which stylistically I love to do,” Cerrone said. “Someone that will stand there and let me showcase my standup — I’m totally excited about [it].”
