Donald Cerrone will be sticking with his typical training partners and cornermen for his big fight against Conor McGregor at UFC 246.
Not long after the fight between Cerrone (36-13 MMA, 23-10 UFC) and McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) became official to headline the January event, noted coach Duke Roufus, who runs the Roufusport team in Milwaukee, claimed "Cowboy" would be coming to his gym for his portion of fight camp.
Although Roufus said the exact details had not been sorted, he indicated something was in the works to help Cerrone prepare. According to Cerrone, though, there's no truth behind that at all.
"Those reports are not accurate," Cerrone told MMA Junkie. "I'm not sure where that came. I heard it also. I'm like, 'Oh, I guess I'm going to Duke Roufus', huh?' It's just another clickbait from you guys. I love you media mother(expletives). Anything you guys can grasp your (expletive) hands on you'll do it."
