Never let it be said that Donald Cerrone was a quitter. The former UFC lightweight top contender turned welterweight is scheduled to fight Mike Perry on November 10th in Denver, CO. And he says he’ll be there, come hell or high water, despite what looks to be a pretty significant injury.
Cerrone recently posted a picture on his Instagram feed from a hospital bed, wearing a cast that covers his entire left arm. No explanation provided. But, considering Cerrone’s penchant for extreme sports and past history of injures from them, perhaps there isn’t really an explanation needed.
But, if he hasn’t gone into details about what exactly happened or how long his recovery will be, he did take time to respond to fans concerned that he won’t be ready to fight in six weeks time.
“why wouldn’t you still buy Tickets??? Never said anything about not fighting,” Cerrone chided a fan, who expressed his displeasure that ‘Cowboy’ wouldn’t make his Nov. 10th booking.
UFC Denver goes down at the Pepsi Center, just two days before the 25th anniversary of the promotion’s first ever show, which hit the McNichols Sports Arena on November 12th, 1993. The event will be headlined by a featherweight top contenders bout between former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and former featherweight title challenger the ‘Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung. Cerrone vs. Perry is expected for the co-main event, as long as Cerrone’s injury recovery goes as planned.
