Donald Cerrone is facing a bit of a losing streak. Now it would appear that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) may be considering having the fighter change his weight class.
“Cowboy” headlined Saturday’s exciting UFC Fight Night 118 event in Gdasnk, Poland. For his opponent, the fighter faced off against Darren Till. While Till is not a division contender, the mixed martial artist is undefeated in his career.
Till made short work of Cerrone in the day’s main event, earning a dominant first round TKO win over his opponent. Now Till holds an undefeated record with 16 victories and a single draw. “Cowboy,” however, is now on a three fight losing streak.
Cerrone faced a decision loss to former champion Robbie Lawler, after being TKO’d by talented striker Jorge Masvidal. Now a new rumor suggests that the UFC is considering making Donald Cerrone move back to the lightweight division.
Here is Middle Easy’s original report on the spreading rumor:
“After another loss over the weekend rumor is if Cowboy Cerrone wants another fight in the UFC, it would have to be back at 155 pounds. The days of Cowboy at 170 pounds, at least in the UFC, may be over.”
