Donald Cerrone wants to pursue Pro Wakeboarding career in 2013


With the ongoing influx of event and fight cancellations, injuries have undoubtedly been the most prominent topic of 2012. Coaches, trainers, promoters, fighters and even fans have all weighed in on the matter, with fingers being pointed towards everything from inefficient training methods to contractually prohibited activity that can be deemed as dangerous.

With that said, of all the fighters walking the line of danger, Donald Cerrone can be considered one of the riskiest. Riding everything from motorcycles to jet skis to 800lb raging steroid-fuelled bulls and now wakeboards. It’s no surprise then that Cerrone has recently decided to pursue a professional career in the watersport known as wakeboarding.

Knowing full well the risks and dangers, Cerrone admitted that he’d have to have a chat with Dana White before pursuing such an ambition. For more on the subject, check out what he had to say in a recent interview with Ariel Helwani.

  • I'm sure the new UFC contracts that disallow anything dangerous would let this happen… but then again as long as he only does it when he has no fight scheduled no problem I guess

  • If Donald Cerrone is riding bulls in his sparetime, then wakeboarding will be a major relief to the UFC. Personally i think its a great move for Cerrone to do other stuff he enjoys….Punching bags in a gym all day and rolling on the mats does your head in eventually.

    • didnt ZUFFA put a stop to his bull riding?

      • I'd say UFC had strong advice to cerrone regarding that. I couldn't imagine Dana sitting quiet with so many injured fighters thinking it was a good idea.

  • i say Cerrone should do it all ! Although Cerrone is one of my favorite fighters who is exciting and fun to watch the reality is he will never be UFC champion so he might as well try to get at championship in something else.

  • ian

    Keep fighting Cowboy!

  • Yeah, there is a real future in wakeboarding…….stick to fighting cowboy.

  • At long last Donald's true calling. Forget all the MMA garbage, wakeboarding is where his talent really lies!
