Video: Is ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone’s career UFC Hall of Fame-worthy?
This past Saturday at UFC on ESPN 43 in Texas, the UFC announced its latest upcoming Hall of Fame inductee.
Donald Cerrone’s career may not have included a major MMA title, but the “Cowboy” resume is littered with accolades.
He has the third most fights in UFC history with 38, and he fought for the lightweight title in 2015. He also fought three times for WEC titles before that promotion’s merger with the UFC.
His 18 post-fight bonuses are tied for the most in UFC history, and he’s tied for second for the most wins and most finishes on company history.
