This battle has particular which means to Cerrone for a number of causes: he has a chance to interrupt firm information and to take action at dwelling:

“It’s Denver, Colorado. This is home for me,” Cerrone instructed reporters backstage at the UFC Open Exercises Wednesday night. “Saturday night time, we’re going to blow the roof off this place, man. I can’t wait.

“There’s no doubt in my mind Perry is coming, heavy hitting, trying to take me out early, so it’s going to be the fight everyone wants to see, man. Like I said, I’d feel criminal if I didn’t oblige to everyone’s demands and stand and fight with him. And so I plan on doing that, getting me a bonus, getting me the most fights in UFC history, most wins in UFC history, most walks in UFC history. That’s cool…cool ring to it.”

The backstory behind this contest has acquired plenty of press, with Donald Cerrone making his extensively publicized exit from Jackson Wink after the battle was introduced.

Greg Jackson is a stable dude, man…good pal of mine. Like I stated, he’s popping out to look at the battle. He’ll be right here. I didn’t work with Greg as a result of it’s not truthful to Perry.

“First of all, Perry has nothing to do with what’s going in in the gym. He’s just a guy looking for a home, and he was looking to find one. Whatever he’s saying about everything else is him hyping this fight up. But he needed a home. What went on with me and Winkeljohn has nothing to do with Perry, so none of this is any energy towards him. And for Greg to train Perry at the gym, and then come and backdoor and tell me what they’re working on, that’s not fair to anybody, man. So by no means am I gonna take a fight where I have a secret weapon. Nah. I’m a standup guy, man.”
