Donald Cerrone Wants To ‘Blow Roof’ Off Pepsi Center Tonight

Donald Cerrone is expecting nothing short of a welcome home celebration when he walks to the Octagon this evening.

Cerrone, who asked for a match at UFC 150 because it will be held in Denver, was born in Colorado Springs, will face Melvin Guillard in the co-main event.

“Hopefully this is a very special night for me,” said Cerrone, during the pre-fight press conference earlier this week. “I hope (Denver will) blow the roof off the place.”

Cerrone has been involved in two Fight of the Night performances since entering the UFC last year. Add that to the five Fight of the Night bonuses he earned in the WEC and it is easy to see why he is a crowd favorite.

“You go do what you do; go out there and fight hard,” Cerrone said. “I am going to fight my ass off.”

“Cowboy” has won seven of his last eight and is 18-4 overall in his career. He was defeated by Nate Diaz late in 2011, halting a six-fight win streak.

    I think Cerrone threw the Nate Diaz fight. He wouldn’t punch him the whole match and only kicked. It was bizarre and I remember even Joe Rogan saying something to the effect of, “Maybe he broke his hand.” I thought the same because he wouldn’t throw a punch, but as it turned out his hands were fine. Either way Cerrone will never be a champion.
