Since Smith recently talked about the incident, Cerrone felt compelled to share his side as well. After addressing the issue, he shared a screenshot of the message Bilzerian sent to Smith. Bilzerian wrote, “So I saw your nonsensical story where you’re using my name for click bait.”

“You should at least try to have some semblance of truth in there. First off cowboy invited me to that fight and he had the Tickets. I didn’t ask anyone to move and certainly not your mother. I also didn’t watch p**n, if she was looking at my phone I’m sure what she saw was a random Snapchat from a girl that turned out to be naked when I opened it.”

“I don’t drink so I certainly wasn’t hammered. Your depiction of this story is complete bulls**t,” the poker player added

So it looks this tense situation between both sides will not cool down any time soon.

What happened between Donald Cerrone, Dan Bilzerian, and Anthony Smith?

Smith had appeared on Michael Bisping’s podcast where he spoke about the incident which happened in 2019 during his fight with Jon Jones. He said (h/t Low Kick MMA), “They come and they wanna sit down and watch the fight, but they’re f***ing hammered. … And so, they tell them (Smith’s group) that those are their seats.”

“Dan Bilzerian and Donald Cerrone, removed my mom and my wife from their seats, while I’m getting ready to fight Jon Jones.”

The fighter also claimed Bilzerian watched objectionable content while being next to his mother. As a result, it looks like the message Bilzerian sent to Smith was an answer to all the things Smith pointed out during Bisping’s podcast.
