Donald Cerrone earned his seventh UFC victory in dominating fashion Saturday night, topping KJ Noons at UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2.
Cerrone rebounded from a loss to Anthony Pettis earlier this year, taking Noons down four times and landing 95 head strikes.
“I wanted to start fast and finish strong,” Cerrone said. “I followed the gameplan.”
Cerrone remains a viable contender in the division thanks to his exceptional blend of striking and grappling. He bloodied Noons, who was making his Octagon debut, early in the fight and continued to press him.
