Like most adults, Donald Cerrone has mortgage payments and other bills to pay, and he relies on a steady paycheck to keep a positive cash flow.
Sometimes, for the sake of that steady paycheck, he has to take fights that somewhat beneath him. Take, for instance, his main event match-up against Darren Till at UFC Fight Night 118 this weekend.
