Dana White: “Everything is on The Line” For Donald Cerrone at UFC Vegas 11
By FCF Staff
Donald Cerrone says he’s not even thinking about retirement, as he gets set to face Niko Price at UFC Vegas 11. But, recently Dana White admitted that Cerrone is in desperate need of a win, as speculation about the star’s retirement has begun.
Due to the fact Cerrone is now 37, and because he’s lost four straight, talk about whether the fighter could be nearing the end of his career has increased. Cerrone, however, has made it clear he’s not thinking about hanging up the gloves.
While appearing on ESPN’s SportsCenter recently, White had this to say about “Cowboy’s” future (quote via MMA Junkie).
“I would say everything is on the line for ‘Cowboy,’” White said. “In professional sports, the day starts to come where all of our heroes start to get old, and ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone is getting there. He needs a win. He needs a win badly.”
Cerrone (36-15) is coming off a decision loss to Anthony Pettis in May, heading into Saturday’s bout. The star’s last win took place in May, 2019, when he outscored Al Iaquinta for the decision win.
