The athlete, however, suffered a serious injury during preparatory training and had to postpone his commitment.

“As you knew, I was scheduled to ride 'Twisted Steel', Dana White's bull, in the PBR finals, on May 18th. I had to undergo surgery after tearing 100% of my biceps. It seems that when you mess with bulls, you get some injuries. This is not the end. (…) Dana White referred me to one of the best surgeons for biceps repair, and in six to eight weeks I'll be back. I’m not going to give up like this,” declared Cerrone, in the Instagram.
