‘Cowboy’ Cerrone offers to fight Anderson Silva if Nick Diaz no-shows UFC 183

Nick Diaz has a bad history of shirking his UFC duties outside the Octagon. He missed his flight to Vegas this week and missed the open workouts on Wednesday.

Life at the Tapout House with female MMA fighter Tami Carswell – Are we having fun yet?

Photo by Tracy Lee - Tami and the Tapout House crew out celebrating the night before WEC 45 weigh-ins.

I am back to training harder; working on all the parts of Tami that can be worked on. Greg gave me a training protocol to work my hips on the ground which I am very happy about since I can’t roll around on my shoulder right now.

There was a pumped up feeling around the house this week in which our boy Cowboy has been getting ready for WEC 45 in Vegas this weekend. Cowboy would just break out into random bouncing around saying he couldn’t wait for this fight. It’s been fun to witness his playfulness around fighting. You can see how much fun this is for him.

Unfortunately, for his opponents Cowboy has “Play Time” tattooed on his shins. True Dat!!! At the weigh-ins Cowboy bounced out with all that energy to face Ed Ratcliff who immediately put a smile on Cowboy’s face by saying that he was going to knock him out.
