More bad news… The sound of irony. You can beat the bloody pulp out of an opponent in the cage, but when you have ‘boat rage’ on a lake in Colorado, you have some answering to do with the authorities, Cowboy. Reports originating from CagePotato.com, stating that the lightweight kick-boxer may be endangering his upcoming bout with Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 27 in Indianapolis on Aug 28 due to an altercation with another boater on Lake Granby recently.
“Donald A. Cerrone, 30 years of age, has been charged with Third Degree Assault by a summons to court, and it is a Class One Misdemeanor. There is no warrant for him at this time. Mr. Cerrone and another person, Jeffrey S. Aley, were involved in a boating rage incident (similar to road rage but by use of boats) on Lake Granby. The incident escalated to the point where Mr Cerrone assaulted Mr. Aley. Mr. Aley was also charged with Reckless Operation of a boat and Reckless Endangerment, a Class Three Misdemeanor. The case is still ongoing, and has not been concluded in court.”
No reports from the UFC, Cerrone’s management or authorities on the matter yet, but considering it is not a felony, our money would be on seeing Cowboy next week in Indianapolis.
