UFC FN 126: Yancy Medeiros is Expecting “The Best Donald Cerrone There is”, Despite His Recent Struggles
By FCF Staff
Yancy Medeiros will battle Donald Cerrone tonight in the headliner of the UFC Fight Night 126. Although the latter’s lost three straight, the Hawaiian fighter doesn’t believe it’s because the 34 year-old Cerrone has lost a step.
Medeiros has been booked for the high profile fight, on account of winning three bouts in a row. Recently the 30 year-old appeared on “The MMA Hour”, and he had this to say about his expectations for Cerrone (quote via MMA Fighting):
“I’m expecting the best Donald Cerrone there is,” Medeiros said. “I’ve taken losses and I feel that that only makes me want to get better. Yes, he’s lost three times, but he lost against three hammers, he lost against three good fighters, all top contenders and they’re all in the top 10 or even higher up in rank. So I ain’t taking anything away from Donald.”
UFC FN 126 will be hosted by the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.
