“I just don’t love it anymore,” Cerrone told Joe Rogan after the fight. You can watch his full comments below.

Cerrone finished his career with a record of 36-17, and he’ll go down as an all-time great fan favorite. No matter whether he won or lost, Cowboy always put on a show.

On paper, he was a solid fighter, but never an absolute superstar. Yet, fans always tuned in whenever he fought. Why? The man knew how to entertain and he always left it all in the octagon.

Now, after years and years of throwing punches and taking strikes for the enjoyment of the fans, he’s taking his family and going home.

There’s no doubt he’s earned a long and relaxing retirement.

Props to Cerrone on an amazing career. You just love to see it!
