Cowboy Cerrone blew his nose while broken and his eye blew up
Cowboy Cerrone made a rookie move during his loss to Tony Ferguson at UFC 238 on Saturday night in Chicago.
Cerrone lost his fight to Ferguson when it was called off after two rounds due to Cerrone’s swollen eye. Cerrone had a broken nose and made the mistake of trying to blow his nose before the third round. Immediately after he blew his nose, his right eye swelled up. You can see it actually blow up the moment after he did it.

Veteran fighters like Cerrone should know better than to blow their nose when it’s broken. He said as much after the fight.
“I shouldn’t have blown my nose. I’m a veteran, I’m old school, and I should’ve known that. But I did, and I humbly couldn’t finish the fight, and I apologize,” Cerrone said, via MMA Junkie.
