People also fail to realize, or just flat out don't know...after the Pettis fight Cerrone started seeing a sports psychologist. I think his tendancy to "wilt" has shown much improvement. It was the big fights that got to him, and he's showed in the last fight with Miller that he's game. It was the big show, national TV, first UFC main event...and the man came out prepared.
He still has his slow starts, but as he's said I think it's more about him getting his opponents rhythm and timing down. It's working. He should probably do a little better at not catching to much at the beginning of fights but he's more than showed he can weather the storm and strike when the time is right.
Alvarez is gonna come out winging at him, he just has to keep his head on a swivel, weather the storm, and get in where he fits in and I think he can take this
