Riding A Six-Fight Win Streak, Donald Cerrone Not Ready To Talk Title Shot

Donald Cerrone is one of the hottest fighters in all of MMA, having picked up his sixth consecutive victory Saturday night at UFC 137: Penn vs. Diaz by defeating Dennis Siver.

“Cowboy” scored a first round submission with a rear-naked choke to defeat Siver and score the Submission of the Night. He has won three of his last six by submission.

However, the 28-year-old doesn’t feel like he is ready to challenge any champions in the UFC just yet. Instead, the former contender for the WEC lightweight title believes he is a fight or two away from contending.

“It’s happening so fast. Title talk in a year? Oh man, I thought it was just gonna take a couple years,” Cerrone said. “Am I in direct line for a title? No. I don’t wanna just go after it. I still have a lot of soul searching to do.”

Cerrone has made mention of dropping down to 145 pounds and meeting Nam Phan due to comments Phan made about Cerrone’s teammate Leonard Garcia.
