Donald Cerrone Ruins ‘Evolution 1′ Main Event Due to Backstage Brawl

(Only the immortal can truly become "best friends forever." Photo courtesy of

This is not the best way to make an impression with your new employer. As first reported by the Na Koa MMA Show, WEC lightweight contender Donald Cerrone was involved in a backstage brawl with a heavyweight headliner at the first event put on by Evolution Combat Sports Championship, this Saturday in Clovis, New Mexico. According to Na Koa…

The brawl was apparently about a young lady now dating Donald Cerrone who used to date the main event fighter of the evening Marcus Sursa. [Ed. note: Not Brittney Palmer. Possibly this chick.] Comments were exchanged after Sursa returned from a trip to the rest room and Cerrone was overseeing the warm-ups of several Jackson MMA fighters on the card…some words were exchanged by the two and then a shove followed by Cerrone throwing a punch causing a laceration on the eye of Sursa, who responded with a punch cutting the lip of Cerrone.

As a result of the cut, Sursa was unable to compete in the event’s headlining fight against Buddy Roberts, which means the promoter can’t be too happy with Cowboy right now. (Then again, would we be talking about Evolution Combat Sports Championship 1 if this didn’t happen? No, we wouldn’t. Not a bad viral marketing campaign, if you ask us.) Cerrone is scheduled to face Canadian striker Chris Horodecki at the WEC’s final event on December 16th.

And because it’s not right to mention Brittney Palmer in a post without running at least one picture of her, here’s a shot of the new UFC ring girl in a Sexy Waldo getup at Pure Nightclub this weekend. Lots more pics here.

Males fight about money or greater women. Fighting for other activities is pointless, harmful, and busterish. If O.D.B. were alive, he’d probably disagree with me at night, but that’s as they was elevated in Brooklyn, NY as well as the rules are completely backwards there. Jesse Cerrone doesn’t live in Brooklyn, NY. Dude lives somewhere in New Mexico where O.D.B. has not been. The 2009 weekend, typically the most popular cowboy did what most males would do when result in the position to manage up for just about any lady, only he managed to get happen backstage inside a local MMA event while using guy scheduled to fight inside the primary event. The conclusion result were some cuts and bruises on males, forcing the cancellation in the primary event.

Way more to the story: Sursa, after training with Jackson's for over a year, becoming part of the family, started an online campaign to get a fight with Keith Jardine by blasting Keith all over the internet. Marcus was part of the family, we invited him into our home, and he shit on our floor. It wasn't just about a girl......

It doesn't excuse a backstage brawl, just puts a little more insight into what happened.

No Offense but anyone who rides a bull and Wears a fucking cowboy hat to the ring chances are is a bag of douche, not to mention anyone here remember an MMA fighter with a Mohawk who wasn't a pile of shit? No I didn't think so NOW attitudes and personal feelings aside Cerrone is an amazing fighter and I love watching him inside the cage, and to be honest I don't really care if he ruined some half assed shows main event. I mean come on the guys a total meat head as if you didn't think he had it in him to do something completely selfish and fucked up like this. On the other hand the guy in the main even aka bag of douche #2 is Partially to blame(If not mostly) I mean come on who gets into a backstage brawl minutes/hours before their Main event fight. Seriously? Take that shit into the cage with you and use it to fuel yourself don't be a fucking dumbass. So honestly this amuses me less then say the Brawl on strikeforce. I am sorry but this Backstage Brawl is the weakest link!

Cerrone didn't like the "How'd I taste?" from Sursa when they were leaving the pisser.

Sursa ain't that good. He's a Shark Fights veteran, and I can't remember the last time he won a fight against somebody relevant. Probably never. I met him once. He was pretty cool. He's from Amarillo (the town where they hold the Shark Fights) like Evan Tanner and Paul Buentello.

Sometimes these things happen in MMA.
noaschmitz- November 1, 2010 at 3:22 pm
It sounds like to me Cerrone got pushed, the main event fighter blew it for him self, he's got to stay focused on his opponent and fight and let everything else go.

Cerrone is 10x more exciting than half of the UFC lightweight division

Oh,... you're right jimbo,... that's not Alvarez. Damn... all them vampires look alike to me when I'm high.
El Guapo- November 1, 2010 at 1:23 pm
Jimbo.. That's not Alvarez. It's Cain Velazquez.

W-w-w-here's W-w-w-aldo? W-w-would ya l-l-look at the f-f-funba...

Cerrone vs a heavyweight contender? Ouch.

Miss Linsay Sheffild is one prime piece of humanity, y'all.

@ cecil

I barely have the heart to tell you that's not Alvarez.
agentsmith- November 1, 2010 at 12:51 pm
In other news, 103 unblocked Facebook photos of one Miss Lindsay Sheffield? Don't mind if I do!

Looks like she is or was a SharkFights ring girl.
agentsmith- November 1, 2010 at 12:47 pm
Whoawhoawhoa, hold on now, ah say hold tha fuck on nah!

Let's get down to brass tacks here... does this mean Brittney Palmer's back on the market? Call me.
cecils_pupils- November 1, 2010 at 12:44 pm
So did Eddie Alvarez get bitten by Chang Sung Jung?

EDIT - no you idiot, Jung is a zombie, in the photo Alzarez is a vampire. Dumbass.

I'd wreck Waldo, too,... who am I kiddin', I'd wreck ALL those chicks.

Just saw the vid. In an ideal world, Cerrone and Sursa would've both went for double low blows and KTFO'd themselves waking up with no reproductive organs.

second from the left is awesome.

Brawls just aren't the same without the Diaz brothers involved. At least this provided a good excuse to show a Brittney Palmer pic.

I think Cerrone, Varner and Henderson can put up some great fights mixed in with UFC lightweights, but yah it's definitely going to be much tougher.
PortlandMMA- November 1, 2010 at 12:34 pm
Wow that is pretty crazy, Sursa isn't horrible either...I think he was on one of the Bellator cards not that long only complaint is when I clicked on "this chick" it asked for a facebook login...and as cool as everyone I went to high school with are, I do not own a facebook.
DazedNConfused- November 1, 2010 at 12:32 pm
$ursa is a complete cunt. Atleast that's what his green mohawk, staredown with Eddie Sanchez, and facebook page tells me. I doubt Cerrone was totally not to blame, but I reckon Sursa came at him yelling about shit and screaming MONEY$$$ every 2 seconds. Barking possibly occurred as well. Gotta protect yourself somehow. I would say the guy whose actually fighting that night should be the one to stop from fighting, especially when it's against a lightweight right before your heavyweight scrap.
BryanF- November 1, 2010 at 12:31 pm
what a fucking dick. Seriously, ruined the main event of an entire show! I feel really sorry for the people that paid to watch that.

I seriously hope a UFC contender totally annihilates cerrone, varner, and any other irrelevant lightweight from the WEC.

...I still have high hopes for Bendo Hendo.
ksgbobo- November 1, 2010 at 12:31 pm
Hot damn! I would destory Waldo! Followed by the Asian bitch with the big ass titties then the bitch at the, that party looks like fun with those bitches...probably not, but still
