Donald Cerrone put an end to his fourth straight victory with this crushing kick to the head, something Matt Brown will surely remember. The fight wasn’t even the main event, but it was definitely the highlight that made its way out of Saturday night’s event. Up to this point in the fight, things were pretty even between both fighters and the scorecard showed it. Luckily for Cerrone, he forced the cards to be torn up with the strike above.
“It was a tough fight,” Cerrone said. “When you’re in there, you really have to dig deep. After I took a couple of punches I said, ‘Hell no. Not today, baby.’ The head kick was there. I saw him feinting to that side and I went for it. I want to fight in Denver against anyone who will sign on the dotted line.”
This was Brown’s third loss in a row, and his fifth in six fights according to MMA Junkie. Cerrone on the other hand remains unbeaten in four straight fights and seems ready for his next bout in the coming weeks.
Elsewhere on the card, Max Holloway became the interim UFC featherweight champion after taking down Anthony Pettis in the third round with a TKO. This sets up a unification bout with Jose Aldo, who became unidisputed champ after the title was vacated by Conor McGregor in November.
