‘They’d Be in a Trash Can’- Donald Cerrone Reveals That He Doesn’t Care For Titles He’s Won

February 23, 2021 11:06 pm

Donald Cerrone is one of the hardest fighters that the UFC has ever seen. He is the UFC leader in wins and fights and has some records that may stand forever.

However, the one thing he never got in the UFC was his hands on championship gold. That doesn’t mean Cerrone has some major accomplishments in the sport.

Cerrone held titles as a kickboxer but has never won one in the UFC. However, his accomplishments get more impressive considering his longevity.

But Cerrone has revealed that he was never in it for the glory. He has a whole lot of stories to tell from his long career, and it seems that was the idea all along for Cowboy.

“They don’t mean anything to me. I don’t care. I don’t know, I was there, I lived it, I checked out. maybe my kids will like them one day, so that’s why Lindsey keeps them. If it were up to me they’d be in a trash can.”

Donald Cerrone: Atypical mentality

The mentality to fighting that Cowboy Cerrone brings is hard to match. He goes out fighting hard every time he steps into the cage, no matter who the opponent.

Even when he was on losing streaks, the UFC could realistically put him in top fights just because of his resume and experience inside the cage.

Cerrone has fought in some major fights but has never earned the ultimate glory. At this point, with Cowboy not winning in his last 5 outings, it seems he never will hold a title in his career.

But that isn’t what he cares about. He has wars from inside the cage that could furnish content for 2 complete memoirs.

Nobody has the miles and stories to tell as Cerrone does. From his debut against Jamie Varner in 2010 to his super-fight against Conor McGregor, Cerrone has seen a lot more than even the most tenured UFC fighters.
