It's several months removed, but one of the biggest MMA stories of 2012 still lingers.

And it will linger at least through April, when two of its key parties are scheduled to meet. Add Donald Cerrone's name to the list of fighters who have had an opinion on Jon Jones turning down a fight with Chael Sonnen, which helped lead to the cancellation of UFC 151 in September.

The interesting part about Cerrone's stance? He and Jones are teammates at the Jackson-Winkeljohn camp in Albuquerque, N.M. – and he definitely isn't playing favorites just because they share a gym and a coaching staff.

"Yes, I'd have fought," Cerrone said this past Friday at a question-and-answer session for fans prior to the weigh-ins for UFC 155 in Las Vegas. "They could call me tomorrow and ask me to fight. I think you need to fight. That's our job. I don't think you should curl up and find a way out. So yes, that's my answer."

"He's my teammate, and we have this discussion all the time," Cerrone said. "I said, 'You should've done it.' And he goes, 'Well, you don't make a million (dollars) to fight.' And I said, 'Well, you're right, but I f---ing fight every time with all my heart.'"

This sentence sums up why I love to watch Cowboy fight!

How my logic would apply:
'You should've done it.' And he goes, 'Well, you don't make a million (dollars) to fight.' And I said, 'Well, you're right, [but if I did I would take any fight on short notice because that's a fuck ton of money]

The other day, I came to terms w/ the fact that I may always hate Vitor Belfort for not breaking JJs arm.
