After driving RV to Chicago, 'Cowboy' Cerrone talks finances, Super Bowl, UFC on FOX 10
CHICAGO – Yes, Donald Cerrone really piled into his RV after the Broncos beat the Patriots this past week in Denver, and he drove it across middle America to his fight in Chicago.
After he fights on Saturday, he’ll load back in and drive out to New Jersey. He has tickets to the Super Bowl to watch his beloved Broncos play the Seahawks for all the marbles.
Of course, when he got to Chicago and unhooked his Jeep, he found getting around to be a little bit of a challenge compared to the open roads at his ranch. He apparently discovered Lower Wacker Drive.
“You can’t even drive around in Chicago,” Cerrone told MMAjunkie. “I brought my Jeep with me, but there’s no way I could get underneath. There’s like three cities down there. It’s crazy. Didn’t even try.”
Cerrone (21-6 MMA, 8-3 UFC) hasn’t been shy about saying he doesn’t think about who he’s fighting too much. He claimed Thursday at a media event for UFC on FOX 10 was the first time he had seen what Adriano Martins (25-6 MMA, 1-0 UFC) even looked like – and that came a day earlier than he expected to see him for the first time at today’s weigh-ins.
But that’s always been the M.O. for “Cowboy,” who likes to fight, but loves to have fun when he’s not in the cage even more.
“Fighting to me is just something that I do. I love it, but it’s not my life,” Cerrone said. “And living my life to me is more important. I just keep having things out there going on – I love it.”
UFC on FOX 10 takes place at United Center in Chicago. Cerrone and Martins are part of the main card on FOX following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
