‘Cowboy’ Cerrone Enlists Sports Psychologist Ahead Of UFC 160

“It’s like, I don’t know if it’s the camera or the pressure, but I’ve got to figure that out. Whatever makes me fight hard to get there, and then I seem to, like, fold under pressure. I don’t know. I’m tryin’ to [figure it out]. I got a new sports psychologist tryin’ to work those kinks out. I’m tryin’ to take a different approach, a different angle, and work on my weight. I think my weight might be a problem, comin’ in so heavy. Right now I’m 174, so I feel great. Staying light. When you lose, everything’s wrong. But really, I just got to get back to what I used to do. Just start grindin’ again.”

In a recent interview with MMAFighting.com, top UFC lightweight fighter, Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone disclosed that he has enlisted a sports psychologist to help him work out why he seems to repeatedly fold under pressure.

Cerrone has had some remarkable performances in the cage, but when it really matters, he chokes.

Think therapy is the way to go?
