Dana White Wants To Keep Donald Cerrone At Lightweight

There is some temptation to move him to featherweight...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Donald Cerrone (21-6 MMA, 8-3 UFC) talked about the possibility of moving to featherweight. He will fight (25-6 MMA, 1-0 UFC) at UFC on FOX 10 this Saturday on FOX at 8 PM ET.
On getting a new win streak going: "I love staying busy. I sure as hell hope (this starts another run). Those runs are good on my bank account, too."
On fighting Martins blind: "I haven't seen one second of his fight footage. I couldn't even tell you what the kid looks like. I'll find out come weigh-ins. I don't care. It's nothing new. Same old mentality."
On possibly dropping to featherweight to fight Cole Miller: "I don't even know who that is, so it doesn't matter. But if I did it correctly and didn't injure my body doing it, sure, absolutely."
Meanwhile, Dana White has said that he wants Cerrone to stay at lightweight. He said: "That kid's fighting on FOX on Saturday night. He wins that fight, he's not moving down. There's no way that's going to happen. Plus, if he was going to move down in weight, he'd move down to fight one of the top 10 guys."
