Two of those three fought Saturday night. The one sided domination was not what Cowboy expected.</p>
"Not at all," said Cerrone as transcribed by David St. Martin for MMAFighting.com. "I was more expecting Anthony to do what he does, kick and play. I think he caught Anthony off guard, too."
"Unbelievable ... I'm very impressed. [Dos Anjos] did a very good job of not letting Pettis get his rhythm and stand in the middle of the cage and throw his kicks. He kept him against the cage and got him thinking punch, punch, punch and then shooting for the takedown. Then he secured and held while he was down. It was good."
Cowboy fights Khabib Nurmagomedov on May 23 at UFC 187. The winner is expected to get a title shot, if dos Anjos's knee heals in time. Cerrone hopes for a rematch with Pettis somewhere in the mix too.
"I'm never opposed to fighting anybody," he said. "Fighting, beating [Nurmagomedov], Dos Anjos, then tell Pettis to come on. Come on with it. That's the new and improved Cowboy. I'm coming for the f---ing belt."
