Donald Cerrone aka “Cowboy” finished Yancy Medeiros with strikes in the first round of the UFC Austin main event.
Cerrone still has the accuracy and power as he grows older in his career, and this was a bit of a must-win for Cerrone, as this snaps a three-fight losing skid.
The fight started quickly as expected, but the exchanges always went Donald Cerrone’s way, with multi-shot combos rocking Medeiros and sending him to the canvas multiple times before another combo rocked the Medeiros and referee Herb Dean called off the welterweight bout at the 4:58 mark.
