Donald Cerrone, the lunatic that he is, often likes to say that he doesn't know where his opponent works best, and frankly, he doesn't care. It's not really a boast as much as a statement.

"It just upsets me that people are taking to the blogs and their websites to directly attack the coaching as being the factor in what happened. There's a lot of things that made that outcome. It wasn't one person's fault. It wasn't his fault, it wasn't the referee's fault. It was a combination of a lot of things that led for this to happen.
