Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight turned-Welterweight and certified badass, Donald Cerrone, loses his eye in freak accident. It is common knowledge that when he is not fighting, DOnald Cerrone is getting his thrills in other extreme sports. So it wouldn’t surprise anyone to find out “Cowboy” severly injured himself trying to reach that high.
Cerrone took to Instagram to let his fans know that he still plans to fight in December despite his battered appearance.
“What’s going on everybody … it’s Cowboy. Before the media puts out what happened, I just want to let you all know that I am fighting in Toronto on December 10. Everything is good. After hours on the table, doctors were able to save my eye, so no issues there. Give it a couple of weeks to heal up and see you in Toronto … shit … can’t catch a break on this fight.”
However, the post seemed to be a joke as reports indicate Cerrone met up with a make-up artist ahead of his upcoming fight with Matt Brown at UFC 206, which takes place Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Dec. 10, 2016.
