Let’s just get one thing out there: each staffer at MMAWeekly.com (and the Hot Sauce Blog) has a background in martial arts. Let’s get another thing out there: none of us are in shape enough to spar with anyone in the UFC, Bellator, WSOF or your local, run-of-the-mill, auditorium fight promotion. In other words, none of us are Spencer Lazara class.
It’s because of this that we appreciate Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and his sparring partner wearing a GoPro camera to show us just what it’s like to spar with someone of the elite level. This will save us the time — and punishment — in finding out what it’s like from a first-party perspective.
To the Cowboy Instagrameage!
