It didn’t take long for WEC brass to address the derogatory comments made by their lightweight Donald Cerrone earlier this week on a popular MMA show. Company vice president Peter Dropick issued a statement today condemning “The Cowboy” for his remarks and reiterated they will not tolerate such barbaric behavior.
Although his apology was heard, it doesn’t mean his vicious statements were forgotten. Here is what Company vice president Peter Dropick said in today’s official press release (Courtesy of WEC.tv):
“In a recent radio interview, WEC fighter Donald Cerrone went too far in talking about his upcoming fight with Jamie Varner and we believe he crossed a line of decency in doing so. We will not tolerate a fighter who makes comments that are not consistent with our company values, nor will we tolerate the use of slurs that may offend any segment of the public. We are aware Donald issued his own immediate apology on Twitter, but we still needed to speak with him about it, and to issue our own statement making our position known.”
