"He told me, if I ever want to be a man and stand and fight him, let him know. But did you see him go to touch gloves and then boom. I was like, 'Whoa, what was that?' It's cool, I was like, 'You want to touch gloves?' He's like, 'yeah' then he touched gloves and tried to go over the top of it. You know, whatever. I went out there, this fight was all about me learning how to have a good time and I went out there and had a good time. "
British fighters have a reputation as strikers but who knew Paul Kelly would open his UFC 126 fight against Donald Cerrone with a cheap shot? "Cowboy" asked "Tellys" if he wanted to touch gloves once the referee gave them the go ahead to start the fight and the Brit decided it was a good opportunity to exploit his opponent and catch him off guard. It didn't work out too well, as he was promptly taken down and eventually submitted in the second round with a rear naked choke. In the end, all is well as both fighters were awarded a hefty $75,000 for "Fight of the Night" and Cerrone is now officially 1-0 in his UFC career. Cheap shot aside, sounds like a good time to me.
