5 Things You Didn’t Know About Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone

3. Cerrone Has His Own MMA Ranch

The financial success Cerrone has enjoyed over the years has afforded him the opportunity to build his own 40-acre training compound in the desert, known as the BMF Ranch. This unique facility is located in the little town of Englewood, New Mexico.

Sure, the BMF Ranch has weights, mats, punching bags, and other standard items one would expect to find. That being said, the location also has its share of unique features.

One such feature is a paintball arena which offers plenty of cover for Cerrone and fellow fighters looking to blow off steam by firing off a few rounds between training session.

This impressive compound also has its own massive sauna, which can hold as many as twenty people at a time. The sauna is perfect for Cerrone and/or training partners looking to shed a few pounds.

Cerrone even has a small play area for his young son to enjoy while dad trains.

Outside of 'Cowboy's' coaching staff, the BMF Ranch has also hosted well-known fighters like former title challenger John Dodson and Lando Vannata.
