Before Donald Cerrone steps into the Octagon to face off against Darren Till in the main event of UFC Fight Night 118 in Gdansk, Poland, take a trip back to one of “Cowboy’s” most dominant performances.
Back in 2016, Cerrone found himself face-to-face with Rick Story, a powerful 170-pounder who was the knockout power to sleep a baby elephant and isn’t opposed to staying on the feet. “Cowboy” was in the midst of a great run at welterweight, winning two straight since making the jump up.
The fight, as imagined, stayed standing, as both men had their moments in the opening round, and even Cerrone tried to pull of a submission attempt the one time the action went to the ground. Round two was more of the same, as was round three before Donald connected with a beautiful punch and kick combination that forced the referee to put an and to the fight.
After dropping two straight, Cerrone looks to get back on the winning track when he faces undefeated Darren Till (15-0, 4-0 UFC) this weekend (Sat., Oct. 21, 2017).
UFC Fight Night 118 will also feature a co-main event pitting Karolina Kowalkiewicz against Jodie Esquibel.
