In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone expressed his frustration in negotiation for the upcoming fight against Tony Ferguson.
Here’s what he had to say:
“There wasn’t really any convincing that had to go on (for me). More or less the UFC called me and asked me if I wanted to fight and I said yes, then it took two or three days for Tony to agree to the fight, which really pissed me off because the UFC called me and offered to me and left me in his limbo.”
“I keep calling like, ‘Dana (White), I’m on (expletive) vacation. Can I drink beer and eat guacamole, or do you want me to go (expletive) run on the beach? Because this in-between, I don’t know what’s going on, is (expletive) bulls**t.’ So Tony took long figuring it out.”
“I don’t think he wanted to have to fight again other than a title fight. I think he believes he deserves a shot, so for him fighting someone like me is super dangerous. Why would he want to put himself at risk of (losing) a title shot? Especially fighting a (expletive) killer. But I don’t give a (expletive). That’s the difference between me. I’ll fight anybody. So I’ve got to beat them all anyway.”Donald Cerrone talking to MMA Junkie
