WTF happened to this UFC fighter?
WTF happened to UFC Welterweight and fan-favorite Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone?
The UFC fighter took to Instagram on November 21, 2016 to post a cryptic message. Cerrone could be seen with an horrifically injured eye. So what happened to him?
Cerrone wouldn’t go into details but mentioned that he spent hours ‘on a table’ and that ‘doctor were able to save (his) eye’. Fans immediately reacted with stupor mixed with sympathy after having watched the striking footage. The UFC Welterweight is known to be an adrenaline junkie who loves partaking in extreme sports thus many fans were wondering if Cerrone had an accident of some sort.
‘Cowboy’ mentioned at the end of the video that despite what happened to his eye he would still fight Matt Brown at UFC 206 in Toronto, Canada in two weeks. It seems hard to believe that an athletic commission would allow him to fight in such physical state.
And for good reason! Donald Cerrone was actually trolling us all. No, his eye was not injured. Yes, it was a publicity stunt. It worked quite well though, didn’t it? If you got fooled by Cerrone don’t be too harsh on yourself, I fell for it as well!
