Bringing specific training partners into your camp to prepare for a certain type of opponent is key to any success a fighter has inside the octagon. Bringing in a former world champion who has been inside the cage with your oponent for 25 minutes can only help with your prepearations and that is what former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis has offered Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone ahead of his camp ahead of his title fight with dos Anjos in December.
