So, before I even begin, let me say that I’m a big Donald Cerrone fan. Now, I feel compelled to say that because the rest of this post is going to be rough on him, son. In any case, I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t objective, man. With that being said, it’s time to call a spade a spade, fam. The fact of the matter is, Cerrone just can’t seem to win the big fight, bruh.
Ok, for those who are living under a rock, Cerrone just fought Conor McGregor at UFC 246. Now, as I stated in a previous post, this was a huge fight, son. I mean, we have the return of McGregor and a big payday for Cerrone, the guy who holds most of the UFC‘s records. Anyway, I expected McGregor to win, but not like this, man. Like, Cerrone got absolutely ANNIHILATED, fam. For God‘s sake, the fight was over before it even started, bruh.
Look, we’re talking about 40 seconds, son. Real talk, 40 seconds is all it took for McGregor to beat the brakes off of Cerrone, man. Shit, after missing his opening haymaker, McGregor hit Cerrone with four-straight shoulder strikes to the face, then a head-kick and ended with punches on the ground. Listen, losing always sucks, but it’s gotta be especially trash to lose like this, fam. Hell, Cerrone went through an entire training camp, just to get finished before the one-minute mark. All I know is, that’s fucking tough, bruh.
But, as much as this hurts to say, I wasn’t really surprised, son. The fact is, Cerrone has never performed well in these big moments. Listen, during his career, Cerrone has gotten four chances at a world title (one with the UFC and three with the WEC). Frankly, he’s come up short every time, man. On the real, there are some fights were Cerrone looked fucking invincible. However, when the stakes reach their highest point, he doesn’t seem to perform the way I believe he’s able to. Fast forward to now and the same shit happened with McGregor. Yes, this wasn’t a title fight, but it was without question the biggest match of his career. Sadly, he couldn’t get it done, fam.
In the end, I don’t want this to seem like I’m just shitting on Cerrone, bruh. Ultimately, I really am a fan of his, son. By and by, I just wish his skills translated when the lights are the brightest, man. Then again, I’ll be right back when he fights again, fam. At the end of the day, I just hoped this would’ve been a better bout, bruh. That is all. LC out.
