The Backstage Fight
Cerrone attended an Evolution Combat Sports event in October of 2010 with his girlfriend at the time to oversee several of his Jackson’s MMA teammates who were competing that night.
However, backstage Cerrone bumped into the heavyweight fighter competing in the main event, Marcus Sursa, who just so happened to be his partner’s ex-boyfriend.
Things soon turned heated between the two fighters, leading to a shoving match and then Cerrone punching Sursa, leaving him with a cut above his eye, while during the brawl ‘Cowboy’ was also left with a bloodied lip.
The fight was soon broken up, but the laceration Sursa suffered led to him being forced out of the evening’s headliner just hours before it was scheduled to take place.
