It’s been a bit since we’ve had the chance to see Donald Cerrone get his hand raised.
“Cowboy” currently is mired in a three-fight slump – the first losing skid of his lengthy pro career. It’s remarkable, really, to think about: Cerrone went nearly 40 fights against some of the best in the business and never lost consecutive fights till recently.
On Sunday, Cerrone (32-10 MMA, 19-7 UFC) has a chance to break out of his slump when he meets Yancy Medeiros (15-4 MMA, 6-4 UFC) in the UFC Fight Night 126 main event. Before his current slide against Jorge Masvidal, Robbie Lawler and Darren Till, he had won 12 of 13 – and the only loss was a lightweight title shot.
Before you watch “Cowboy” try to get back in the win column, check out one of his most vintage performances in his first UFC main event. Cerrone headlined UFC Fight Night 45 in New Jersey and took out fellow veteran Jim Miller with a brilliant head kick in the second round.
Check out that fight in the video above. Then don’t miss UFC Fight Night 126, which takes place Sunday at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. It airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
