Dana White: Next Fight Will Be Donald Cerrone’s Last Chance
Donald Cerrone will have one more chance to snap his skid in the UFC.
Cerrone fell short in his bout with Alex Morono at UFC Vegas 26. It was the fifth loss in the 38-year-old Cerrone’s last six fights. The bout that didn’t end in defeat was a No Contest against Niko Price.
“Cowboy” has certainly seen better days inside the Octagon and it appears he’s nearing the end of his pro MMA career. At the very least, his UFC run could be on borrowed time.
Speaking to reporters following UFC Vegas 26, White discussed what the future holds for Cerrone (h/t MMAFighting.com).
“‘Cowboy,’ again, steps up, Diego falls out of the fight, [and] he steps up and takes a last-minute replacement, co-main event. He accepted the Diego fight because they both said they would fight at 170 [pounds]. He wants to move down to 155, and I’m going to let him do that.”
White went on to confirm that Cerrone’s next fight will be his final chance to secure a victory. It would be his first since May 2019.
Cerrone told reporters that he will not retire after losing his bout with Morono.
“Absolutely not [my last fight]. No way. I’ll never go out like this. I will, 100 percent I’ll know [it’s the last fight] and I’ll come in, and sh*t, hopefully I go in whipping ass right off. There’s no way I’d end like this. I couldn’t let my legacy end like this.”
