Donald Cerrone has big plans for his UFC debut at UFC 126. Coming off a great submission win over Chris Horodecki, "Cowboy" now changes his focus to UFC veteran Paul Kelly. In an interview with The Fight Fix, Cerrone said "The guy I'm fighting is not much of a kickboxer, he's more of a stand-up boxer, so I think I'll be able to keep him at bay with my distance if I use my kicks effectively so really I don't have to step back and gameplan anything differently for this guy, just go in there and hopefully he wants to brawl. I don't even know who Paul Kelly is to be honest with you, they just sent me some tape on him... as far as throwing down I know the dude brings it, comes straight forward every time and that's the kind of fighter I like to fight. A knockout would be good [for my] UFC debut."
Cerrone had stepped in for the injured Sam Stout, and is currently riding a 2 fight win streak going into his octagon debut. UFC 126 takes place February 5th from Las Vegas, where Anderson Silva will defend his UFC middleweight title against Vitor Belfort in the main event.
