Donald Cerrone Unsure If He’ll Wait For Anthony Pettis

Donald Cerrone is one of those fighters who would take a bout every other weekend if he could.

So, fighting just twice in 2012 was tough on Cerrone – both mentally and financially.

Now, with word of a Staph infection sending planned opponent Anthony Pettis to the hospital, “Cowboy” is unsure if he’ll be re-booked with another opponent.

“We were supposed to go for Denver. No. OK, we’ll be ready in December. January. Now February? March?” said Cerrone, in an interview with “I understand the guy is hurt, but I’ve got bills to pay, too. It sucks. I need to get with my management team and we need to figure out what’s going on.”

Cerrone (19-4) fought five times in 2011, but has competed just twice this year. He knocked out Melvin Guillard and scored a decision over Jeremy Stephens.

Pettis (15-2) has been out of action since February, as he went under the knife for shoulder surgery. “Showtime” knocked out Joe Lauzon in Japan in his last fight.
