The Cowboy wants a fight...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Donald Cerrone (23-6 MMA, 10-3 UFC) called out Khabib Nurmagomedov for a future fight. Cerrone will fight Jim Miller (24-4 MMA, 13-3 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 45.
On who he wants to fight: "Whoever wants to sign the contract. I say that, and I mean it. You see a lot of guys that want to sit, say they're hurt, secure their position in the top-10. I don't care. If the last place guy wants to step up and fight me, come on with it. That's how I feel. If you want to get in there and fight, let's go."
On fighting Nurmagomedov: "There's a guy that everyone is saying they're scared to fight, so I'll go ahead and step up; I don't mind: that Khabib dude. Bring his ass on, too. I don't care. Who, when, that doesn't matter. Chasing that belt, that's the overall goal for sure. But like I said, I just want to fight. I know Michael Johnson just got hurt. I'll gladly 10 days from now go fight Josh Thomson, no problem. Just load up the RV, take off and go."
On his legacy: "I want to know when I'm fighting people say, ‘I'm buying that pay-per-view. I'm pulling off the road, we're finding a bar because I know this fight is going down.' That's what I want. That's the only legacy I care about. I want people to know I fought my ass off and gave everything I had."
