Donald Cerrone talks to Ariel Helwani after his impressive showing at the UFC 131: "Dos Santos vs. Carwin" event last night (June 11, 2011) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and calls out Sam Stout, who was also in action on the card.

"Cowboy" cruised past late replacement and Octagon debutant Vagner Rocha, while "Hands of Stone" knocked out journeyman Yves Edwards with a left hand so devastating that Dana White referred to it as "one of the most vicious knockouts in UFC history."

That was a great performance by Cerrone, I am disappointed that he seemed to think otherwise. At least, judging by his post-fight comments that he fought not to lose instead of fighting to win. It seems like he's be listening to the criticisms of Jackson MMA.

To that end, I want to say.... They are smart with their game planning over there. And not all of them are point fighters (see: Stann, Brian and Guillard, Melvin as two references off the top of my head). These guys go to Jackson MMA, and get their skills taken to a new level. They take their fighters strengths and tailor game plans that allow them to use their strengths to win.

Look at the Cowboy's record. I believe he is 15-3 now, with 12 subs and 3 decisions. No KO's. But with Rocha's grappling prowess, Cerrone would rather make it an MMA match than a grappling match, and he did just that.

He did a pretty damn good job striking, and he was popping Rocha's head back all night with that jab. He was stuffing takedowns and getting out of shitty spots, and in the process he beat Vagner so bad he looked like he could hardly walk in Round Three.

I'd say it was another solid performance from the Cowboy. Nothing to be ashamed of whatsoever.

Exactly what i was thinking last night, Cerrone vs Stout! I couldn't believe Stout actually knocked Yves out. Who does Stout ever KO? haha. That was unbelevavle but Cerrone definitely looked frustrated he couldn't slug it out last night.

If they made this, this would be absolutely ridiculous.

this fight has FOTN written all over it with 2 very exciting fighters. Cerrone showed some great striking and Stout is a pretty good striker himself. i have Stout winning a decision here. Cerrone would idealy want this fight on the ground, but Stout did very well last night off his back against Yves who has a solid ground game. i just dont know if the Cowboy is able to take Stout down very often, let alone keep him there to work a sub

ill be rooting for Cerrone though. ive met both fighters (Stout twice) and Cerrone is by far more personable and better to talk to.

I'd love to see it. Wouldn't know who to go for. I don't like Cerrone calling people out left and right, though.

I'd love to see the fight but you're right, he should stop calling out all these guys. He's past guys like Cole Miller IMO. A fight with Stout seems perfect.

the only thing i am not liking about the Jackson camp is many of their guys seem to not finish fights... They have great gameplans on how to not lose, but not so much on going out to win. they seen to focus on stopping their opponents strengths rather then exploiting their weaknesses

I'm a big Cerrone fan even though I've always considered him a little overrated. He comes to fight and doesn't really care if he's fighting for the title or not, so I don't care who he calls out, just put him back in the ring.
