Donald Cerrone, the man who holds the most wins in the history of the UFC, spoke about how he would like to be remembered when he finally hangs up his gloves once and for all.
Cerrone achieved that record with his fantastic submission victory over Mike Perry late last year and in staying true to himself, has already lined up a fight for this weekend’s debut on ESPN in Brooklyn.
Speaking during a promotional video for the UFC ahead of his showdown against Alexander Hernandez at this weekend’s UFC Brooklyn, Cowboy explained exactly what form his legacy would ideally take.
“My legacy, that’s what I want it to be, man. I want to be like ‘f**k, Cowboy’s fighting, we’ve got to f**king watching this’. If I’m on Fight Pass, ‘we’ve got to pull over, stop the bus, we’ve got to download the app and watch this’, if it’s pay-per-view, ‘we’ve got to find a bar,’ right?
“I don’t care if people watch the rest of the card or just me. Just get in there. Cowboy’s fighting, he’s going to give it everything he’s got.
“To me, that’s the dying name I want. I want to be the guy that everybody loved to watch fight because, no matter who, no matter the beef, I got up, I fought, and I had integrity and respect afterwards. To me, that’s what’s important.” (via BJPenn.com)
Always a must-watch!
