Fan favorite UFC fighter Donald Cerrone, who is fresh off a spectacular welterweight win over Rick Story at UFC 202 this past weekend, recently earned his BJJ black belt.

Cerrone, who has won 16 of his 31 professional MMA wins by way of submission, posted about getting his black belt on Instagram:

After a full night of getting my ass tapped out @firemarshall205 surprised me with my Black Belt. Thanks you @eastontc

So far no word yet on when Cerrone will return to the Octagon, however knowing ‘Cowboy’ it will be sooner rather than later. With that being said, UFC President Dana White has stated that he would like to see Cerrone continue to fight at welterweight rather than lightweight.
