Cerrone said during an interview on Majority Draw Radio last week that he’s broke and his spending habits are “out of control.”
“What really happened is I spent all my money, so I’m broke, and I only have one choice but to fight,” Cerrone told Majority Draw Radio.
Cerrone said that he texted Joe Silva after his last fight — a win over Evan Dunham at UFC 167 in November — to say he needed a fight ASAP. That’s when they booked him for the UFC on FOX 10 card.
“I’m just out of control,” explained Cerrone. “It’s hard to have money in the bank, want something, and not get it. I just [expletive] buy it. I have no idea what saving money is.”
Cerrone also said that he has his fire back after losing it before when he got comfortable. Even though he was training, he didn’t have the same fire that he had before, which could explain his two losses in 2013.
Man, I understand that Cerrone has no idea what saving money is — and at least he recognizes his problem — but he needs to change his ways if he doesn’t want to end up on the follow-up documentary on ESPN 30 for 30 for “Broke.”Google+
