Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone (born March 29, 1983) is an American professional mixed martial artist and kickboxer. He was featured on the Versus television series TapouT, where he was sponsored before his fight with Anthony Njokuani. Cerrone won the fight in the first round with a triangle choke.
Cerrone was signed to fight in the WEC. His first fight in the promotion was against Kenneth Alexander. Originally a win via submission in 0:54 seconds of the first round, the decision was changed to a no contest when Cerrone tested positive for the banned substance hydrochlorothiazide. He returned to the WEC nine months later, defeating hometown favorite Danny Castillo via submission at 1:30 of the first round.
At WEC 38 he fought WEC lightweight champion, Jamie Varner, for the abovementioned title, losing via split decision. He gained another title shot at WEC 48 against Ben Henderson but lost by first round submission.
