Donald Cerrone is a bad man!
Donald Cerrone put on a ‘Nate Diaz’ like ass whoopin on Jeremy Stephens a few months back on UFC on Fuel. It was vintage Cerrone from bell to bell ending in a unanimous decision victory. As if the victory wasn’t difficult enough, Cerrone was/is suffering from an intestinal issue which causes him immense pain.
Two weeks before he fought Jeremy Stephens at UFC on Fuel TV 3, Donald Cerrone was in the hospital.
“I rolled my intestines,” Cerrone told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Savage Dog Show.” “From my surgery years ago, I have a lot of intestinal and stomach problems still to this day, and I was in the ICU and they almost had to do surgery on me.”
The initial injury from years back was a nasty one.
“I was racing some motocross and I wrecked real bad and just kind of spilled my guts out,” Cerrone said. “They had to take a bunch of my intestines and part of my stomach. What happened this time is, my stomach basically rolled around the intestine. Man, talk about pain. It was like someone was stabbing me. Oh, it was so brutal. I had to go to the ER, and basically they had to empty all of my intestines out and then rush water down my stomach and try to get it to unspin, kind of like a garden hose. If you have a kink in the hose, you run water and the pressure will cause it to unravel. It worked, so thank God.”
Trainer Greg Jackson urged Cerrone to drop out of the Stephens bout, though.
“Greg and Leonard [Garcia] were like, ‘Dude, you’ve got to pull out of the fight,’” Cerrone said. “I was like, ‘Hell no. The fight isn’t for like two weeks. I’ll be fine by then.’”
Remember what caused Brock Lesnar to retire from the UFC…intestinal issues. Not only is Cerrone suffering from a terrible injury, he’s winning while doing so. That my friends is a Bad Man!
