The first two rounds were close, the agent Iaquinta made his moves, but in the following three rounds the Cowboy pulled ahead by a full length.

There’s a fine line between Cowboy kicking a regular guy in a suit, and kicking a guy dressed like a Chippendales dancer. I went for the latter.

Coming up with a caption for this was like the old ‘batman slapping robin’ meme

Al: Don’t you wanna secure little Donnie’s future?

Cowboy: His name is DANGER!

Al: You going surfing after this?

Cowboy: It’s called WAKEBOARDING!

Real estate jokes aside, Cerrone is a perfect b-side for Conor McGregor. He’s got the skills to win, and a personality that McGregor can rankle. I’m just an armchair cartoon psychologist so take nothing seriously, but maybe there’s a correlation between fighters McGregor can upset before a fight and goad into a situation to McGregor’s advantage, versus unflappable opponents who remain rooted in their own game plan.

Take care of yourself and I’ll talk to you tomorrow.
