.@MMAjunkieJohn: Do you still size up your opponents?

Donald Cerrone is as candid as they come. It’s just part of the reason why “Cowboy” has so many fans. Being a great and exciting fighter also plays a part and we will get another chance to see Cerrone scrap again at UFC Fight Night 118.
Ahead of his main event fight in Gdansk, Poland against Darren Till, “Cowboy” was asked by MMA Junkie if he saw his opponent around to size him up and see what he is up against in the Octagon.
Cerrone got around to answering the question but not before talking about a hilarious goal of his that he hasn’t been able to accomplish yet in life.
“I was getting a massage, worst massage I’ve ever had in my life to be honest with you. It was terrible. It was brutal,” said Cerrone. “I felt like the girl would just lube me with as much oil as you possibly – like, if I stood up I would have been like a dripping honey bear of oil. And then she just like – which I heard that, I don’t know because I been trying to go to a jack shack for many years and I’ve never found the right one. But I’ve heard if they just kind of like barely rub on you, that’s the key and I was like, this is my moment. This is it. But, no. It was just a super weak rub the whole time. Nothing came of it. But, yeah, I’ve taken my friends to ’em and I thought I’ve hit, I’ve been to some sketchy places in New Mexico and I’m like, this is the one. This is it. And then they rub me and I’m like whoa, come on. But, nothing. Never happens. Haven’t got it.”
If that story didn’t entertain you, be sure to tune in and catch “Cowboy” fight in the Octagon on UFC Fight Pass as he meets Darren Till in the main event of UFC Fight Night 118 in Gdansk, Poland.
