Donald Cerrone was stopped in the first round by Conor McGregor, but he suffered no broken bones, says “Cowboy” himself.
Previously it was reported that Cerrone (36-14 MMA, 23-11 UFC) broke both his nose and orbital bone in his 40-second TKO loss to McGregor, but now he denies ever breaking anything.
Cerrone was handed a 180-day suspension following the loss.
“Surgery?? I didn’t have anything broken,” Cerrone responded to one fan on social media.
“That’s because they didn’t break. Not sure why the UFC always says that”, told the MMA star, too.
It also was incorrectly alleged that Cerrone had broken his orbital bone in his doctor’s stoppage loss to Tony Ferguson at UFC 238.
