The UFC veteran and one of the biggest names of the UFC Welterweight division Donald Cerrone is returning back to action against Alex Morono on UFC Vegas 26. This fight was originally scheduled between Diego Sanchez and Cowboy but Sanchez has been recently cut from UFC and Morono is stepping as a short-notice replacement in this fight.

Donald Cerrone who is the holder of multiple records in UFC isn’t having a good run recently. He is on a four-fight losing streak and his last fight against Niko Price ended in a draw. After this fight, Dana White thought to have a conversation with Cowboy about hanging in gloves and announcing his retirement.

But this conversation never happened, although Dana White’s initial comments hurt Donald Cerrone. In the UFC Vegas 26 pre-fight press conference, Cerrone says, “Hell yeah it hurts, What do you mean? Of course. We took a little slower approach this year, but I don’t know. I am getting old.”

“I am. I need to slow my fighting down a little bit, for sure. Let my head heal – but sh*t, we’re ready. Doing that grappling tournament with Rafael dos Anjos was the best thing I ever did. It got me excited into jiu-jitsu again.” {H/T MMA Junkie}

Donald Cerrone continued, “It got me excited and training and fired up. I shouldn’t say fired up, because it’s not like the fire ever left. I hate that term. In a way, I got excited about it again.”

“I fell back in love with jiu-jitsu, and I’m excited to go out there and participate. I keep trying to find something to fill the void. Racing, I do it every day all day long, and I get excited, nervous.”

“Saturday I get to do the most exciting and nervous thing I’ve ever done, and every time I love it. I feel good. Team’s good. Body’s good. Can’t wait.” {H/T MMA Junkie}

Alex Morono wants to make a name for him by defeating Donald Cerrone in their match-up at UFC Vegas 26. But Cowboy is ready to show his A-game and prove to everyone that he is here to stay.

Donald Cerrone says, “The kid’s coming, He’s hungry. That’s what makes this dangerous because he’s not an old veteran like I am. He’s like a new, up-and-coming, hungry kid. I’m sure his team is like, ‘Go in there and swarm this motherf*cker right away in the beginning.”

“If you’re going to get ‘Cowboy,’ you’re going to get him early.’ So, I brought (my coach) with me, we’re going to be getting Rounds 1 and 2 out of the way in the back, so I’m going to come out there f*cking ready to go.” {H/T MMA Junkie}

Cowboy continued, “I wanted the main event. I would’ve loved five rounds. I don’t know if that kid can go five. I still have the malicious intent on hurting a motherf*cker. … I plan on every punch and every kick to be lethal,”

“I don’t want this kid to make it out of the first round. So, when he watches this, know I’m coming motherf*cker, so when you come hard and come fast in the beginning, I’ll be ready.” {H/T MMA Junkie}

What are you views on this will Cowboy win this one or is it going to be his last UFC fight?
