He then used the internet forums to challenge, and badmouth many of the sports high level athletes. One of his target's became ROF fighter Duane BANG Ludwig, a point not missed by the Cowboy.
"I am really ready to fight this guy. I knew a little bit about him, but once I heard some of the things he said about Duane, regarding his family and stuff, it just made me mad. I am going to put him to sleep. KO or triangle, he is going out. Tell Manny, the Cowboy is coming and he is bringing Hell with him!" said Cerrone.

He recently returned to training and says he will be ready for Reyes at the end of the month. ROF fighter and Cerrone teammate, Eric RUMBLE BEE Buck is also on the card.
