Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone Transitions From UFC To Racing: 'I'll Whip Your Ass'


Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone recently put the finishing touches on a Hall of Fame UFC career. What's next for Cerrone? People run in the desert.

On the latest edition of “Kevin Harvick's Happy Hour,” Cerrone discussed how he's enjoying racing.

“I don't cheat. I play by the rules. Just like fighting, I've never cheated, ever. I've never gained weight. I've never taken any drugs. I've always played by the rules, so I've never worried about anything. The same The thing is, I'm running as hard as I can, people will recognize me out there, so they don't want to push me, because I'll whip your ass and leave you for dead in the middle of the desert, so it'll be fine,” Cerrone told host Kevin Harvick.

Would Cerrone ever find himself taking a racer into the Octagon? almost

“I was driving another guy's car, and he'd pull out, and he'd hit us. It's called nerfing, when somebody doesn't move out of the way, so you make them move. Well, he (the other driver) had a Class 1. The buggy, which is a 1,000 horsepower buggy, pulled away from us and I let him go.” Then he pulled over for about a mile, and did it again. Pulled up a mile up the road, did it again, so when we got to the finish line I unbuckled my seat belt and got back in his car because we finished before him, and I was like, 'Hey, you have a problem, like, I don't understand?'

“He was like 'Oh, no, no, no, no, no, our steering pump was off, our fuel pump was off. We had to keep pulling.' And so, I'm like, 'OK,' so that was the closest I got to whipping somebody's ass in the desert.”

Cerrone, 40, finished his UFC career with 36 wins, 17 losses and two no contests. Among those 36 wins are 17 by submission and 10 by knockout. Cerrone was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2023.

“Cowboy” actually has a link to the NASCAR Cup Series, as he was introduced to now-former Cup Series driver Kurt Busch when the latter spoke at the 2023 NASCAR Awards and Celebration of Champions in November of last year.

Busch finished his NASCAR career with 34 Cup Series wins and, most notably, was the 2004 NASCAR Cup Series champion.
