Rob McCullough is trying to get himself back in
the lightweight title mix in World Extreme Cagefighting. The WEC had
one of its strangest moments when they had to postpone the show
scheduled for Sept. 10 when Hurricane Ike threatened the South Florida
area. The show wasn't actually just pushed for a week or two, but for
two months.Now the time has come for the fight to finally begin
when McCullough will take on Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. The postponement
had a serious effect on McCullough's training camp, being it was so
close to the fight when it was canceled... just five days prior.“It
was real close to the fight,” McCullough said recently in an interview
with MMAWeekly Radio. “If they were going to call it, I'd rather they
did it at the end so I can start my cycle all over again and not in the
middle.”When a fight gets postponed, it can cause a major
inconvenience to the participating fighters because they depend on
their purse to compensate their training camps.“Yeah, because
we didn't get reimbursed,” McCullough explained. “Basically, my
partners and my training camp said, 'we're going to do this all over
again?' I said, 'Yeah,' and we didn't get paid for it so... But I said,
'Don't worry. It'll all work out in the end.'”This will be
McCullough's tenth fight for the organization. He has enjoyed great
success fighting for the WEC, going 7-2. He feels very lucky to be part
of their promotion. “I'm really excited. The WEC has always taken care
of me. It's like a second home. I've had quite a few fights in the WEC.
I know everybody in the backdrop of it all. It's a great organization.
It's comparable to the UFC. I'm glad I'm in the WEC and not in EliteXC.”McCullough
is the former WEC lightweight champion, but was stopped by current
titleholder Jamie Varner. He returned to the cage in June against
Kenneth Alexander. The Californian was noticeably hesitant to pull the
trigger against his tough opponent, but was able to earn the split
decision.“I think I was a little gun shy at the beginning in
the first two rounds,” commented McCullough about his most recent
fight. “Towards the end, I started opening back up. Then it was just a
matter of making sure I got the W and not doing anything dumb. Just
getting back in there and getting the cage rust off.”Cerrone
has been on an impressive streak of his own, going 8-0 to start his
career with one no contest. Not only is Cerrone undefeated, but he has
also submitted all of his opponents in under two full rounds.
McCullough knows the test he's about to face and doesn't take it
lightly. “I think it's going to be a hell of a fight. I think I've been
training my butt off. I'm sure he has too. I've got some tricks up my
sleeve. I'm sure he's got some stuff, but all in all, I plan on being
the victor that night and getting ready for another title shot.”With
a former titleholder taking on an undefeated fighter, the winner of
this fight only further solidifies his case for being the number one
contender for Varner.“This is definitely a well-deserved title
match-up fight,” said the 31-year-old fighter. “We've both worked hard
to get here and we'll do our thing.”“Razor” Rob McCullough has
been through some tough times with the loss to Varner and the
postponement of this last fight. He's trying to take everything in
stride and just work to get back to where he once was: the WEC
lightweight championship. “I've just got to take it one fight at a
time. I've been doing this a long time.”He may be taking it one
fight at a time, but that doesn't mean he's lost sight on a rematch
with Jamie Varner. If he is successful in his fight with Cerrone,
McCullough really wants to get another crack at Varner. “Oh man, do I?
I can't wait.”
