‘Cowboy’ will ride again… this time on the grappling mat.
Cerrone’s Bad Luck
Donald Cerrone hasn’t had the best run in the UFC as of late. The former title challenger has lost a gone 0-5, 1 NC in his last 6. He hasn’t won since defeating Al Iaquinta in May 2019.
The same can’t be said for his pro grappling career. While he did just lose to BJJ superstar Craig Jones last week, he would submit former UFC Champion Rafael Dos Anjos by armbar, a year ago. This win over his former rival would be his only win in combat sports since his tough UFC stint.
He will look to get another victory when meets fellow UFC veteran Joe Solecki at Fury Grappling 3 on Dec. 30th. The grappling card will be streamed on UFC Fight Pass and takes place at 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.
