|SafeAuto Fight Team Member Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone!
SafeAuto Fight Team Member Donald Cerrone dominated Jeremy Stephens for 15 minutes at the UFC on FUEL 3 event in Fairfax, VA. ‘Cowboy’ couldn’t have responded any better in his dominating performance at the Patriot Center after coming off a disappointing loss to Nate Diaz in late December. The clear decision victory over Stephens was ‘Cowboy’s’ seventh win in his last eight fights and puts the Colorado native right back in the discussion for the UFC’s lightweight title picture.
"The goal of this fight was to fight my fight and not get dragged in to anyone else's battle," Cerrone said. "(Nate) Diaz did a really good job of sucking me into his battle. Dictating the pace and fighting my own fight was the plan so I executed pretty good.”
The leader in state minimum auto insurance coverage was extremely pleased with ‘Cowboy’s’ performance. The SafeAuto logo received optimal exposure on Cerrone’s signature cowboy hat upon entering the Octagon. Once inside the cage, the red SA insignia was clearly visible on Cerrone’s trunks as he controlled the fight from the opening second. “I’m honored to be on the SafeAuto team,” said Cerrone. “It’s good that these guys really care about their fighters.”
Many fighters take some time to soak in their victory upon completion of their bout … Not ‘Cowboy.’ “"I want to fight in Denver," Cerrone said immediately after beating lightweight Jeremy Stephens.”Whoever's begging at the bit to go is who I want to fight." Whether or not Cerrone’s next fight is in his hometown of Denver, SafeAuto will be proud to sponsor ‘Cowboy’ wherever he enters the Octagon.
