UFC lightweight Christos Giagos called out veteran Donald Cerrone following his win at UFC 262, saying “It’d be an honor to fight Cowboy.”.

Editorial: Donald Cerrone should retire, because retirement is never about defeat

It was pretty undignified, all things considered. For years, Donald Cerrone was a proud gatekeeper.

Saturday, he looked like meat for the journeyman grinder, as Alex Morono, a competent but unspectacular pugilist, made quick, somewhat awkward work of the Cowboy.
