Cerrone admitted during his post-fight media scrum that he was pulling for Diaz because he simply was not wanting to hear from “Notorious” again.
“Now I gotta listen to this (expletive) dude talk again, forever,” Cerrone said. “I’m not looking forward to that.
“‘The King’ is back….(expletive).”
Cerrone scored his third consecutive win at welterweight – the same weight the McGregor-Diaz bouts took place – when he finished Story. “Cowboy” said afterwards that he wants to face Eddie Alvarez for the UFC lightweight title this November at UFC 205 in New York City, but UFC president Dana White sees 170 pounds as a good fit for him.
