Yesterday Joe Rogan sat down with UFC fighter Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone. In the interview, Cerrone lashed out at Jackson Wink MMA Academy. Now, local fighters including Diego Sanchez are defending Jackson Wink. Coaches at Jackson Wink respond to claims.
"Appearing on The Joe Rogan Experience on Wednesday, “Cowboy” explained how he found himself in an awkward situation when an offer came along for him to fight Mike Perry at UFC Denver on Nov. 10. Perry recently joined the Jackson-Wink team in Albuquerque, N.M., where Cerrone has trained for over a decade, and though Cerrone has no problem stepping into the cage with Perry, he was concerned about sharing the gym with his future opponent and voiced his concern to his coaches, Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn.
“I went to talk to Greg and Wink and say, ‘Hey, this guy’s brand new to the gym. He’s only been here one camp, a couple of months. I don’t think that it’s okay for him to come in and call me out. That’s not right. So if he is doing that, I don’t think we should allow him to train here for this fight,’” Cerrone said. “Then f**king Winkeljohn tells me, ‘I thought you called him out’, he’s just a s**t-ass and lies to your face, so to me he was like, ‘Sure, no problem, we’ll clear it up and we won’t have any issues.’” "

“Loyalty is two sides,” the coach told MMAjunkie. “‘Cowboy’ is not loyal to anybody in the gym. He’s on his own. He does his own thing. He has not, from what I can remember in the last 10 years, ever helped anybody out with their own camp. He’s as narcissistic as they come.” see more HERE
