Cerrone stops Medeiros with TKO

Donald Cerrone had never lost two fights in a row before falling to Robbie Lawler via unanimous decision at UFC 214 last July. Since Cerrone had dropped three straight heading into the contest, and because "Cowboy" will turn 35 next month, there had been speculation as to whether the sun might be setting on the vet's contender status.

The win came with two seconds left in the first round at UFC Austin, as Cerrone punched Medeiros to the canvas before striking more blows to his opponent before the referee Herb Dean stepped in to stop the fight. But after knocking out Yancy Medeiros in the closing seconds of round one last night, Cerrone wants the big fish. Perry said. "But I respect Cowboy, he has done a lot, he's a great fighter".

On the pressure of his fight: "This was a big nerve-y one, man". If you want to smoke a J and go get smacked around in a cage, I'm fine with it.

Brandon Davis also pulled off a slight upset in his Fight of the Night performance against Steven Peterson, with 42 percent of fantasy players picking him to win.

Now, these comments should resonate for a couple of reasons. "So my hat's off to all the guys who do the UFC fighting, I love it, I love my job more than anything and there's no other place I'd rather be tonight".

In December, Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone told Brendan Schaub and Bryan Callen that he planned to return to the division in which he had competed for his entire career up until 2016. Cerrone and Nurmagomedov, to remind, have plenty of history together, having been booked to fight twice in the past to no avail. In against the Englishman, a massive welterweight, Cerrone had looked terribly undersized and his decision to move back down was entirely understandable under the circumstances.
