Donald Cerrone Banking On Having The Advantage Vs. Melvin Guillard

Donald Cerrone was born just outside Denver, Colorado.

Come Saturday night at UFC 150, Cerrone will return to his native land to face Melvin Guillard in the co-main event.

Cerrone, during a recent interview with Inside MMA, believes having dealt with the altitude that comes with competing in Colorado, and the distinct home-Octagon advantage the crowd will give him, should help push him past Guillard.

This has been a dream I’ve had ever since I would fight kickboxing. Fighting someone at home is a big deal. You have all that momentum of everyone there trying to watch them. Some people feed off of that energy and some don’t. Hopefully, I feed off it.

As for the altitude issue, “Cowboy” said, “I think altitude is a huge deal and people don’t really think about it until they’re here.”

Cerrone (18-4) will look for his second consecutive win after defeating Jeremy Stephens earlier this year.
