UFC lightweight and welterweight contender Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone was not impressed with Daniel Cormier’s UFC 200 performance against Anderson Silva.
“Cowboy” took part in a special Fan Expo Q&A with CM Punk dubbed “UFC 200 Aftermath” where he trashed “DC” for his performance.
Here is what Cerrone and Punk had to say as transcribed by BloodyElbow.com:
CM Punk: “The worst fight?”
Cerrone: “Your boy, DC. Terrible!”
CM Punk: “What?”
Cerrone: “Terrible. How are you going to give up weight and then fight like a f*g, man?”
*applause breaks out in the audience*
CM Punk: “Wait a second. You and everybody else who clapped for that were the same people who were cheering when Brock would take Hunt down, and do the exact same thing DC did to Anderson.”
Cerrone: “That’s different. That was Brock.”
CM Punk: “It’s the same thing!”
Cerrone: “Yeah but Anderson is giving up 30 pounds, flies in, two days notice, fights [Cormier], you’re — f*cking stand and fight, motherf*cker!”
CM Punk: “Hey, I get it! Everybody’s disappointed. They want to see Anderson Silva do some ninja shit. But if I’m standing across from him, I don’t want to see him do ninja shit. I’m gonna take his ass down.”
