This is not the best way to make an impression with your new employer. As first reported by the Na Koa MMA Show, WEC lightweight contender Donald Cerrone was involved in a backstage brawl with a heavyweight headliner at the first event put on by Evolution Combat Sports Championship, this Saturday in Clovis, New Mexico. According to Na Koa…

The brawl was apparently about a young lady now dating Donald Cerrone who used to date the main event fighter of the evening Marcus Sursa. [Ed. note: Not Brittney Palmer. Possibly this chick.] Comments were exchanged after Sursa returned from a trip to the rest room and Cerrone was overseeing the warm-ups of several Jackson MMA fighters on the card…some words were exchanged by the two and then a shove followed by Cerrone throwing a punch causing a laceration on the eye of Sursa, who responded with a punch cutting the lip of Cerrone.

As a result of the cut, Sursa was unable to compete in the event’s headlining fight against Buddy Roberts, which means the promoter can’t be too happy with Cowboy right now. (Then again, would we be talking about Evolution Combat Sports Championship 1 if this didn’t happen? No, we wouldn’t. Not a bad viral marketing campaign, if you ask us.) Cerrone is scheduled to face Canadian striker Chris Horodecki at the WEC’s final event on December 16th.

And because it’s not right to mention Brittney Palmer in a post without running at least one picture of her, here’s a shot of the new UFC ring girl in a Sexy Waldo getup at Pure Nightclub this weekend. Lots more pics here.
