It seems counter intuitive to want to punch your friend in the face before a crowd of thousands, but not so much for Cerrone. And that’s just what he’ll do with Guillard at UFC 150 on Saturday night in Denver.
“I’d fight anybody, it’s a business to me,” Cerrone told MMAWeekly.com’s Conner Cordova in an exclusive one-on-one interview.
“I don’t get personal, only with Leonard,” he said, referring to his best friend, whom he shares a ranch with in New Mexico.
But with Guillard, Cerrone has shown nothing but respect, appreciative that his friend would step up for the fight so that “the Cowboy” has a fight on his home turf in Denver.
Now, he wasn’t so kind to former WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis.
