Dana White Confirms UFC Will Release Donald Cerrone if He Loses His Next Fight

In the co-main event of UFC Vegas 26, Cerrone suffered a first-round TKO loss to Alex Morono It was his fourth loss by knockout in his previous six bouts. Cowboy said he had no desire to hang up his gloves, and how he “couldn’t let my legacy end like this.”

With Cerrone’s defeat, and in particular the streak of six fights without a win, Dana White plans to give Cowboy one more fight at lightweight.

“‘Cowboy’ again steps up, Diego (Sanchez) falls out of the fight, he steps up and takes a last-minute replacement, co-main event. What he wants to do – he accepted the Diego fight because they both said they would fight at 170,” White said. “He wants to move down to ’55 and get another fight, and I’m going to let him do that.”

“Yes (it will be the last one if he doesn’t win),” White said. “Yes.”
