Cerrone Puts Danzig on Blast, Rocha on Notice

“…and I call this here the ‘cattle prod’.”

Donald Cerrone faces UFC newcomer Vagner Rocha this weekend at UFC 131, but to hear him tell it, he knows next to nothing about the guy. “I haven’t watched any video on him and I haven’t watched any tape on him, I don’t care,” Cerrone told, “I’m going in there to fight him like I’m going in there to fight anyone else.”

Of course, “fighting him like anyone else” means that we could well have a Fight of the Night on our hands, an award that Cerrone has picked up five times in four years.  His first fight with Ben Henderson in 2009 was a five round war that was Sherdog’s pick for Fight of the Year.  Now 14-3 (1 NC), Cerrone has racked up 12 submissions wins, but he’s not interested in going to the ground.  Speaking of his opponent, a noted grappler with four of six wins coming via submission, Cerrone lets it be known that he wants a damn fight. “I hope he doesn’t come wanting to make this a jiu-jitsu match,” Cowboy says.

Vagner Rocha is a Brazilian by birth, but lives and trains in Florida under Pablo Popovitch. Rocha’s 6-1 record includes two wins on Bellator undercards and a decision loss to Bret Bergmark under the Strikeforce banner… and that pretty much sums up the information on Rocha, who most of us know very little about. While his grappling credentials are as legit as they come, there is some concern that he’s too one-dimensional to offer Cerrone much difficulty on the feet.

Cerrone had a few choice words for his previous opponent, Mac Danzig, who pulled out of the fight with Cerrone last month. Danzig started some trash talk on Twitter, saying “So all you have to do to secure a fight you haven’t earned is wear a silly hat, call yourself ‘Cowboy’ and talk trash? Seems strange.” Cerrone did not take kindly to that sort of discourse, and believes that Danzig faked an injury to avoid the fight, responding:

“I wasn’t surprised he faked the injury and pulled out of the fight because that is what happens when you talk shit and can’t back it up. I was very motivated for that fight. I was getting ready to go in there and show Mac why I belong in the UFC. But just because Mac pulled out doesn’t mean I’m not coming for him. He’s still going to get his ass kicked. If he wants to talk shit then he’s going to get his ass kicked. That fight will happen.”

Now, we’re all for guys getting fired up before they step into the cage, but we hope Cerrone isn’t looking past this Rocha fellow. A loss to some random dude would hamper the momentum Cowboy has generated over since his win at WEC 53 in December, momentum he needs to climb the ladder in UFC’s packed lightweight division. But Cerrone has words for Rocha as well: “Don’t come and try to pull guard. I don’t want to have a boring fight and disappoint anybody. So come ready to throw down.”
Yeah, that’s what we’re talking about. Gitty up, Cowboy.

Go find a fucking forum that relates to your gay banter.

"A loss to some random dude would hamper the momentum Cowboy has generated over since his win at WEC 53 in December, momentum he needs to climb the ladder in UFC’s packed lightweight division."

Does this imply that his last fight was in WEC?
Dont forget he choked out Paul Kelly in his UFC debut in February.

The inbred hick approach to gay dudes on some of these comments are really embarrassing for straight guys and MMA fans. Good job, you fucking idiot.

Have fun with your 'merry xmas' sign, I'm sure God will be proud of you. Hey, when you die and go to heaven for being such a great practicing Christian... tell Jesus i said i cant wait to fuck his asshole ;)

I don't think "homophobia" exactly translates to "fear of getting fucked in your ass."

That might be more like prisonrapeaphobia. But you're still an idiot.

In my experiences, being gay appears to involve more than being attracted to men. I don't want to hang out with gays, but it's less because of the sex with men and more because of the overall lifestyle. It's the same to me as saying I don't want to hang out with emos or goths. I just find them obnoxious and annoying, don't share similar interests, don't like their style, and I don't enjoy being around them. Just my 2 cents, and I know they aren't ALL like that, but in general there seems to be a number of non-sexually related traits that come along with homosexuality that I find extremely irritating.

i gotta agree with intercept 440. i don't want to beat the shit out of gays or have any hard feelings toward them but i still don't want to hang out with any. probably because i am a big fan of the vagina and all.
this is a dangerous fight for cerrone. really nothing for him to gain. a win means nothing but a loss means everything.

Cerrone is the man. One of my favorite fighters for the last few years.

and lets be honest here ....does anyone really want to hang out with a homosexual unless there homosexual????

i mean ive shagged a few lesbians back in the day , but other than them, i dont think i really wanna hang with gay dudes, for any reason.. if you say you do.. thats great for you, but honestly unless you got something in common with them, i dont think so

Cerrone used to be a pretty quiet humble guy. I like the new white trash shit talking version better.
dim mak- June 8, 2011 at 2:43 pm
cerrone's a homophobe, if i remember correctly, which means he's not a guy i'd ever pull for.

Cowboy is the man. He knows what the people want, and brings it everytime. WAR COWBOY!!
Stak40- June 8, 2011 at 1:54 pm
Last comment was all kinds of gay Rex!! Hard not to like Cerrone. To me him having to fight this Rocha dude is kind of a slap in the face.
