“After this fight, I’m going to dabble down at 145… I’m going to give it a go, win or lose. But it’s going to be a win, so I’m not real worried about it. I kind of leaked it out to you guys before I even spoke to the WEC. But they don’t care. If I can make the weight, I’ll be there. It’s not like they’re going to tell me no.”

Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone to MMAjunkie.com Radio on his plans to also fight at 145 lbs in the WEC. Although it didn’t likely play a role in his decision, Cerrone has lost in both shots at the WEC Lightweight (155 lbs) title – first to Jamie Varner via a controversial technical split decision, later to Ben Henderson via decision in a fight that could have gone either way. He’s now looking to also fight in a Featherweight division stacked with strong talent in champ Jose Aldo as well as ex-title holders Mike Brown and Urijah Faber.
