Donald Cerrone Switching To Featherweight Following UFC 167

UFC lightweight and fan favorite, Donald Cerrone revealed this week that he is planning to move to the featherweight division after his UFC 167 face off with Evan Dunham, stating that he feels he would dominate many of the competitors at that weight and make a run at the title.

Cerrone, speaking during a Google+ chat had this to say:

“I need to get (Mike) Dolce on my side. I’m going to 145 after this fight. [Featherweight] is going to be a lifestyle change. No more Bud Light and Budweisers. No more stopping with Chris on the way here to eat random food. No more late nights with (UFC Senior Director of Public Relations) Dave Sholler at Wendy’s. Those are all things you’re going to have to change.”

“I just think I could really dominate down there. I don’t know. Most people lose a lot of fights, and they run down. I’m going to go down to 45 after a win, so we’ll see. I’ll still be at 55 though, I’ll play back and forth. Why not? Go get the belt.”
