Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone Rips Into UFC Fans Who Claim He Threw Fight Against Conor McGregor
Donald Cerrone has hit back at UFC fans who accused him of throwing his fight against Conor McGregor.
Cowboy, who holds the record for the most wins and finishes in UFC history, was defeated in 40 seconds at UFC 246 in Las Vegas.
In his first fight for 15 months, McGregor was out out of the traps in rapid time - smashing Cerrone with a number of shoulder strikes in the clinch - breaking his nose and possibly even his cheekbone in the process.

A brutal head kick and ground and pound led to the stoppage and Cerrone's third consecutive defeat via TKO.
On Instagram, after he posted a picture with the caption, "Live Free" - a few fans aimed digs at him for losing yet getting a big payday.
Replying to one fan, Cerrone wrote: "Take a dive you stupid motherf****r?? Who you think your talking to? Get a f*****g life"
And going in another who called him out, he commented: "You think that's funny? You feel like I'm the kind of Man that would sell my soul? Do me a favor and unfollow me if that's how you feel."
In his post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White had some stern words for anyone of the opinion the fight was fixed.
"Conor McGregor came out, he looked fast, he hit hard, he had a gameplan, and he finished a real tough kid who came to win.
"I was blown away. He looked unbelievable."
One man who will have been most annoyed with McGregor making quick work of Cerrone was poker player Dan Bilzerian, who is believed to have lost over £1 million after backing the loser.
