The ‘Cowboy’ rides into the podcast! UNLEASHED welcomes record-breaking MMA fighter and UFC icon from Edgewood, New Mexico. In the exclusive interview with The Dingo and Danny, the 39-year-old mixed martial arts pioneer looks back on his journey as one of the first American icons in professional cage fighting.
Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Donald Cerrone is one of the most accomplished fighters in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA). Before ‘cage fighting’ became a mainstream phenomenon, the black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competed in early fight organizations like World Extreme Cagefighting. The rest is history: Cerrone joined the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on day one in October 2010 and embarked on a milestone-heavy career as one of the main figureheads of the sport. Competing in the UFC’s Lightweight and Welterweight divisions, Cerrone set records for most finishes (15), most wins (21), most fight bonuses (16) during his career. The avid hunter and outdoorsman also appeared on the big screen in movies like ‘Spenser Confidential’ and is ready for his next chapter after retiring from professional MMA.
