Donald Cerrone talks to MMAJunkie.com prior to his WEC 45 bout this weekend with Ed Ratcliff:
One of Cerrone's sponsor, felt hat manufacturer Resistol, has arranged for the lightweight to ride the first bull at a Professional Bull Riders event in Texas in 2010.
Cerrone admitted it's been about six years since he had been atop a bull, but he's not at all concerned.
“I'm more nervous for Saturday night than I will be on the bull,” Cerrone said. “I hope they give me a badass one.”
So there. If you thought “Cowboy” had gone soft, think again. He's just as brash and bold as ever. And on Saturday night, Cerrone aims to prove he can dominate Ratcliff from start to finish.
“I know [Ratcliff] is a tae kwon do guy,” Cerrone said. “His wrestling's not there. His submissions definitely aren't there, so I feel like I have this fight anywhere it goes.
“He's a karate guy; I'm a kickboxer. I'm real confident in that area, and I just don't think he has what it takes to beat me.”
