Cowboy Cerrone Is a Lot Like Nick Diaz

December 14, 2011

Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone will fight for the fifth time in 2011 when he faces Nate Diaz at UFC 141 to close out the year.

The former WEC title hopeful is now starting to inch closer and closer to UFC title contention with his dominant wins this year.

Count UFC President Dana White as a Cowboy fan.

The promotion’s head honcho loves the way the New Mexico based fighter goes out and always gets the job done, and says that Cowboy reminds him of another famously aggressive and nasty fighter in the UFC.

“I like the way he fights. He’s mean and nasty. You talk about a guy like Nick Diaz, Cerrone isn’t too far from a Nick Diaz, he just isn’t as public,” said White.
