Donald Cerrone Ready To Fight Again Soon, Will “Literally Fight Anybody”

1

Following his impressive second-round knockout win over Jim Miller at last night’s UFC Fight Night 45 (video highlights), Donald Cerrone says he’s eager to fight again soon – and he doesn’t care who his opponent is. Earlier this week, Nate Diaz took another shot at the Cowboy when he tweeted:

Diaz holds a decisive win over Cerrone when he scored a unanimous decision win at UFC 144 back in December 2011. He’s currently out of action due to a dispute with UFC over money.

Cerrone told MMAJunkie on Thursday:

“I will literally fight anybody. UFC tells me the date and time to be there, and I’ll gladly be there. Nate, Khabib Nurmagomedov – anybody – I want to fight. So, the sooner the better, and I’m looking forward to getting back out there.”

With his win over Jim Miller last night, Cerrone (23-6-1) is on a four-fight winning streak, with wins over Evan Dunham, Adriano Martins, Edson Barboza and Miller.
