Cerrone Admits To Asking Mike Perry’s Coaches To Stop Training Him

UFC veteran Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone recently decided to move away from Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico in favor of moving back to Denver, Colorado. Meanwhile, Cerrone’s upcoming opponent Mike Perry has recently joined Jackson-Wink MMA.

Cerrone reportedly asked the gym to not train Perry for their fight. Now “Cowboy” has come forward with details on the matter within an interview on the JRE MMA Show.

“I went to talk to Greg and Wink and say, ‘Hey, this guy’s brand new to the gym. He’s only been here one camp, a couple of months. I don’t think that it’s okay for him to come in and call me out. That’s not right. So if he is doing that, I don’t think we should allow him to train here for this fight.”

“Then f—ng Winkeljohn tells me, ‘I thought you called him out’, he’s just a sh-t-ass and lies to your face, so to me he was like, ‘Sure, no problem, we’ll clear it up and we won’t have any issues.’”

“With Greg, his name is on that building. It’s Jackson-Wink. Jackson-f—ng-Wink. When it came time to pick the decision and they said, ‘We want to go with Perry.’ Why the f—k didn’t you stand — because Greg’s still with me — he’s like, ‘I’ll just come to the ranch and we’ll sort this out.’ And I’m like, ‘What the f—k are you talking about?’ You tell me I can’t come into the Jackson-Wink gym, but you’re going to backdoor and come into my f—ng house and we’re going to train to fight while Perry’s there at the gym.

“You see everything he does and then you’re going to come and you’re going to train me, not to mention you’re holding classes there and — you might not be training him to beat me, but there’s a lot of people there that have trained with me for f—ng years.”

“So to me that was the point I was saying. Can we just not have him there for this camp?”
