Cerrone dreaming of new bike as he moves up in weight

For the first time in his career Donald Cerrone will fight at 170 pounds on Sunday at Fight Night Pittsburgh. So it’s only fitting that a bigger "Cowboy" look for a bigger bike.

“I’m getting bigger, I need a new bigger bike,” Cerrone said to UFC.com on Thursday afternoon, echoing similar comments he made on social media earlier in the week. “Stepping up in weight class I can eat and I’m happy and getting a bike I’m happy.”

It's good timing for Cerrone to start a new search as the UFC extended its partnership with Harley Davidson this week. Cerrone said he’s pumped that Harley and the UFC partnered up for another year.

“The Harley people are my people, blue collar kind of crowd,” Cerrone said.

 

"Cowboy" currently has four Harley’s in his collection but said he has a lot of friends that hang out and like to ride, so he’s looking to add more. Specifically, Harley’s newest Road Glide Ultra caught the eye of Cerrone. He admitted he’s getting older – and now bigger – and his wife rides with him too, making “the Cadillac of Harley’s” the perfect fit.

“You just push your knees in the breeze and take off into the hills and relax” Cerrone said. “If I asked you to jump in a car and go on a two-hour ride to nowhere you'd say no man what are you talking about. If I asked you to get on a bike it's a different thing.”
