It’s time for the main event, and it has lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos taking on challenger Donald Cerrone in a rematch. Who does the crowd favor? “Cowboy” of course, and they make it known with cheers and applause at his entrance.
Of course, fan support means nothing once the cage door shuts.
Referee Herb Dean says “go” and Dos Anjos comes out on fire, immediately tagging Cerrone with a storm of lefts and rights. The American stumbles his way to the cage and covers up, and the Brazilian follows him, flurrying and unloading until Cowboy absolutely withers.
Again Cerrone stumbles away, and this time he shoots for a takedown. The champ stuffs it, the pounds out the turtled challenger until the ref steps in.
Result: Rafael dos Anjos def. Donald Cerrone via TKO (Punches) at 1:06, R1
