“ I want all the blue collar American working class people to know that I’m out there fighting for them. People ask me , ( why don’t you take time off?) but the working class doesn’t take time off. They’re out there working every day. That’s what I do, too. I want them to know there is hope, and I’m out there just like they are. “ this is the quote I had @budweiser put on the top of the can. They also put Brewed and Canned for cowboy fans. I’m so blown away by this thank you @budweiserusa and I’m excited to see these cans all over Vegas
Cerrone Custom Budweiser Label
The label looks similar to the usual Budweiser packaging. However, the custom label features Cerrone in his trademark cowboy hat. Additionally, all of his UFC records will be listed on each can.
The cans also feature a quote from Cerrone in regard to the working class of America.
“I want all the blue-collar American working-class people to know that I’m out there fighting for them. People ask me, (Why don’t you take time off?) but the working class doesn’t take time off. They’re out there working every day. That’s what I do, too. I want them to know there is hope, and I’m out there just like they are,“ wrote Cowboy.
Unfortunately, the custom can will only be available for fans that are in Las Vegas for the fights. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of move Proper no 12 makes next in regards to promoting the event.
