“My two goals next year (are): I’m trying to work with the PBR (Professional Bull Riders, Inc.). I actually want to ride. I want to work with the UFC and work with the PBR and make a publicity junket out of it. Get on one of the baddest m———–s. Why not? I’m (also) gonna become a pro wake boarder next year, that’s one of the goals I got… I’ve ridden tons of bulls. I’ve ridden bulls before a couple of my fights — about a week before (a fight). This summer, I believe it was before the Vagner Rocha fight. That’s what I do. This summer I’m really gonna start chasing rodeo. Just once. Just one time.”
Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone told sherdog.com that he doesn’t want to stop at MMA when it comes to living up to his athletic dreams.
In fact, the rising lightweight fighter is looking to head to the Rodeo circuit as a bull rider in 2012 in addition to wanting to turn pro as a wake boarder.
It is not unheard of for gifted athletes to take on more than one-sport, but the UFC has often frowned upon these types of career choices.
However, not being in the combat field of sporting may give Cerrone a chance to live out his dreams as a three-sport athlete.
Can he do it?
