Donald Cerrone wants at least one more fight.
In the co-main event of UFC Vegas 26, Cerrone suffered a first-round TKO loss to Alex Morono. He was supposed to face Diego Sanchez, but on a week’s notice, the opponent changed. For Cerrone, he says the loss is heartbreaking for him.
“It’s just a rough day in the office. This game can get changed, all it takes is one big shot. He hit me with a good one, set me back. Hit me with another one,” Cerrone said to ESPN. “I could hear my coaches say grab a hold of him and it’s like I don’t know if I can take three of them. The kid came hungry, ready, no excuses on my end. I was ready. We warmed up great, came out started early, who knows.”
According to “Cowboy,” he believes he should’ve kicked more in the fight but after he got rocked it was survival mode for him.
The loss is disappointing for Cerrone, but he says he still wants to continue to fight. He is winless in his last six but Cowboy says he can’t go out like that and wants to end with a win.
“Heartbroken for sure,” Cerrone said. “I don’t know. Don’t know what to answer you on is it that time. I don’t know. I don’t feel like it but how I feel and how I perform are two different things. It sucks. Who knows. I wanted to go back to 55, those boys at 70 hit hard, they’re big boys, but like I said, no excuses. That kid came in, he was ready. It’s definitely hard to break a streak, isn’t it? I need to break the damn streak cause it’s brutal. I wish I had the answers but I don’t.”
Whether or not Donald Cerrone gets another fight is uncertain at this time.
