Anyone who is a fan of MMA must have heard the name ‘cowboy’ at least once in their life. Well, that’s the professional nickname of Donald Cerrone.

A lightweight and welterweight fighter in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Donald enjoyed various accolades in his career.

He started his career with World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) but his first victory was denied because he used a banned diuretic.

After October 2010, when WEC merged with UFC, Donald officially became a part of UFC and faced his first opponent, Paul Kelly, nearly four months later.

Donald Cerrone was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame on July 6, 2023.

Lindsay is a proud mother to three children, and how she manages her time for work, and the growing up of her children is a complete mystery.

She rather chooses to keep her personal life private as she does not have an Instagram to share her accolades and pictures.

However, she is very popular amongst the fanbase of MMA as the fiance of the popular ‘cowboy’ whom many fans adore.

The couple seems to be deeply invested in each other, as you can see in some Instagram posts by Donald.

When Donald announced his retirement after submitting to a chokehold in a match against Jim Miller on July 2, 2022, he put the world in utter shock.

Apart from MMA and other fight-related stuff, Donald’s hands are full with other departments as well.

He established an MMA gym back in 2014 in Edgewood, New Mexico. Other than that, he appeared on television in a Netflix series and starred in the film ‘Terror on the Prairie‘ as well.

Donald’s life was not all bed of roses, though, as controversies and accusations always shrouded him.

He faced racism accusations in 2014 and 2016, sexual harassment allegations in 2014, accusations of making homophobic comments in 2010, etc.

Apart from that, he has a pretty good life with his wife and three beautiful kids.

His first child Dacson Danger Cerrone was born on June 29, 2018, his second child Riot River Cerrone on September 11, 2020, and his third child on January 9, 2023.
