Donald Cerrone not happy with Jacksonwink’s losing streak.
Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone is as surprised as anyone with the current cage losing streak of the famed Jackson-Wink MMA fight camp.
After UFC’s reigning featherweight champ Cris Cyborg retains her title at UFC 219 with a hard-fought fifth-round win over former bantamweight champ Holly Holm on December 30.
Not only that, Over the past few months, the likes of Holm Holm, Cub Swanson, Alistair Overeem, Michelle Waterson, and Donald Cerrone have dropped short in high-profile UFC fights.
After Holly’s lost, JacksonWink staff photographer Marc Aragon posted series of gender-based insults towards Cyborg.
Since the incident, the Jackson-Wink MMA photographer Mark has been publicly scrutinized, since had his credentials revoked from UFC events, and afterward made a public apology to Cyborg.
Donald took to social media and felt to address the situation.
TEAM! I have been a part of @gregjacksonmma before my first WEC fight. The recent comments made by their social media team don’t represent the team that I know, love and fight for.
Apparently, one fighter Donald Cerrone was not pleased about the situation, who is currently riding on three-fight losing streak himself, weigh in on the controversy while speaking to UFC Unfiltered podcast with Matt Serra and Jim Norton.
“I know (Cyborg), but regardless of who it was – like if somebody wants to go say that, do it on your own time,” Cerrone said. “You’re not the (expletive) media person for one of the largest MMA schools in the country and then (expletive) start talking like a total (expletive) jackass, you know what I mean? That was my take off that.”
Cerrone further discussed:
“Yeah man, It’s just wild. I mean, sh-t, it’s not a thing that’s the norm. Even since I’ve been there we’ve been a pretty successful squad, but lately we’ve had a bit of trouble. Look at me, I’m f-cking three losses. The first I’ve had ever. It’s bullsh-t, I don’t know what the f-ck is going on. I’m like 174-175-pounds right now. That’s like my walking around weight so 170-pounds is easy. I don’t have to train nearly as hard, but I’m not making any excuses.”
“I want to go back to 155-pounds. My next fight is at 170-pounds of course but I mentioned to the UFC that I want to go back to 155-pounds. They said, ‘We’ll talk about it, see what’s going on after this fight.’ So, I was like alright. But who knows? I’m not making any excuses – saying it’s the weight or it’s this or it’s that – I just had a run of bad luck i guess. I’m getting my ass kicked so we gotta’ figure something out.”
Cerrone will square off against surging welterweight Yancy Medeiros in the main event of UFC Fight Night 126 on February 18th which takes place at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.
Cerrone stated that his upcoming foe Yancy Medeiros is riding a three-fight win streak and he’s on a three-fight losing street. Somebody’s record has got to go.
