Razor Rob Looking to Cut in Line for Title Shot

Originally posted on

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.”
