Donald Cerrone spoke to reporters at the post-fight press conference for UFC Fight Night 132 earlier today and discussed his main event loss to Leon Edwards. Below are some highlights (transcript via MMAjunkie).

Cerrone on not losing any stock with the loss: “I don’t think I lost any stock. I love my job more than any of you can ever imagine. I love getting in there and fighting, so winning and losing is part of this game. Of course it sucks. I only got half my check, but hey, I had fun. I really did. I had a good time.”

Cerrone on Edwards: “He went out there and got the unanimous decision, five rounds, good for him. Congratulations. I’m still looking to fight two more times this year, so if there’s anybody out there looking to fight ‘Cowboy,’ the old dog, give me a call and we can set this up.”

Cerrone on how long he wants to keep fighting: “I’m going to go until UFC says, ‘Cowboy, enough, bro. Enough, enough, enough.’ (I want to fight) at least five more years, definitely. At least. Until the UFC says, ‘No more.’”

Donald Cerrone on his wife about to give birth: “I’m home on the first bird. My wife’s having a baby, man. It’s time to get home. She’s holding it, we’re going to have a C-section as soon as I get home. He’s nine-and-a-half pounds right now. Literally I land, we go to the hospital, and here he comes.”
