Donald Cerrone is a rough and tumble kinda guy. Don’t believe me? Just read this article from NBC Sports which chronicles some of his many insane injuries over the years:
The second time Cerrone broke his back, it wasn’t even the worst part of his day. While riding four-wheelers in another remote expanse of his native Colorado, he made a split-second decision to follow a friend on a 60-foot jump.
The man who will fight for the WEC lightweight title this weekend made it about 55 feet. The four-wheeler impaled Cerrone, breaking several ribs, turning his lungs into Swiss cheese and exposing his internal organs to the sun.
“I remember dying at the hospital on that one,” Cerrone said. “I was knocking over the gurney, throwing up blood on the floor, and then I had the most peaceful feeling I’ve ever had in my life. I woke up from the coma 2 1/2 weeks later, though.”
That just begins to scratch the surface of all the whack shit Cerrone has done. If you like him as a fighter (and who wouldn’t after his awesome fight with Razor Rob McCullough) but have no idea who the fuck he is, check this article out. It’ll give you the full details on who the Cowboy is and what makes him tick. Honestly, he seems kinda insane. But I like that about my fighters.
