Cerrone Says He Will Continue Fighting
Of course, as soon as the defeat occurred, fans took to socials to ponder Cerrone’s retirement. But, Donald responded to the retirement thoughts via Instagram by saying that he will continue to fight.
“I came to throw down and do what I love!” I had a blast and I’m not going anywhere. See y’all again soon,” wrote Cerrone on Instagram.
Making Formidable Matchups
Prior to the fight, Cerrone lost to Conor McGregor in 40 seconds at UFC 246. He was completely outclassed and fans began to wonder if Cowboy should continue fighting.

Also, Donald’s “anywhere, anytime” attitude could see him back inside of the octagon faster than everyone presumes. After all, Cerrone has already fought twice in the year 2020, and we’re only 5 months in.
Who do fans want to see Cerrone fight next? Should it be a top contender? Or, should they dial back the competition in his latter stages?
