Donald “The Cowboy” Cerrone (8-0) is set to face “Razor” Rob McCullough (16-4) at WEC 36 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida on November 5, airing live on the Versus Network at 9 p.m. ET.

It will be Cerrone’s third fight for the Zuffa-owned promotion, after making a mockery of the lightweight division in Ring of Fire.

In addition to being undefeated in eight fights, he’s finished all eight of his opponents by submission.

Not bad for a U.S. Muay Thai Champion that went 28-0 in his Muay Thai career. In fact, Cerrone admits to being bit of a late bloomer in the grappling department.

“I remember when I first started training I was like ‘Man, I don’t know why people always submit people, that’s gay, I just want to stand on my feet’. Then I started learning jiu-jitsu and now here I am submitting people, it’s funny.”

What isn’t funny is the $3,000 fine and eight month suspension he served after testing positive for diuretics following his match against Kenneth Alexander at WEC 30 - a match he won via armbar in just 56 seconds.

@ what he said about fighting friends and training with Leonard Garcia “I try to knock the little bastard out every time we spar - and then we’re friends afterwards”.

Cerrone is going to be an absolute force. He's so well rounded, wherever this fight goes, Cerrone has the advantage.
