Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone gave the MMA world a brief heart attack when he posted a video of himself with a badly scarred right eye, and then played it off like it was a real injury. But don't worry, he's just filming for the new Netflix Western Godless. It's all in fun, people! It's makeup, also known as "movie magic."

Cerrone joked that the doctors were able to save his eye and he would indeed still fight Matt Brown at #UFC206 as planned.

And then Twitter had a slight meltdown.

The crazy thing is that ONLY a post like this from Cowboy would make people wonder, because if this really did happen to him, he would still fight. He's done it before.

The truth is a lot less juicy, though. Cerrone announced he'd be filming the show this past August.
