UFC FN 83: Donald Cerrone on Loss to RDA – “I Should Have Been Doing Some Liver Ups”
By FCF Staff
Donald Cerrone will return to the Octagon on Sunday night, and when he does he’ll be competing at welterweight, rather than defending the lightweight title.
The perennial and rugged contender faced Rafael dos Anjos at UFC on FOX 17 in December, after Cerrone had put together an eight fight winning streak. Cerrone was quickly taken out by RDA, however, and as a result, the latter is facing Conor McGregor on March 5th.
Recently “Cowboy” appeared on UFC Tonight, and while discussing his loss to dos Anjos, Cerrone stated (quote via FOX Sports 1 press release):
“I should have been doing some liver ups. There’s no excuses, I didn’t show up. I lost the title. And I lost a great fight with Conor McGregor. But what can you do?”
“I don’t. I just pray to god he doesn’t start fast. I have no idea how to deal with it,” added Cerrone, when asked about his reputation for being a slow starter. “I haven’t found the secret yet. Maybe Sunday I’ll have the secret recipe here in Pittsburgh.”
Cerrone will face Alex Oliveira in the main event of UFC FN 83, which will be hosted by the Consol Energy Center.
