Tonight, for the first time since December of 2016, Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone had his hand raised in victory. Cerrone defeated Yancy Medeiros in the first round, in a fight that was a brawl from the start (as all Cowboy fights are).
This fight was huge for Cowboy, who has struggled mightily in the last year plus, because it can hopefully get his game back on track and he can start to make some noise again either at 170 or 155 pounds. While it should be noted that Cowboy's skid did come at the hands of three certified killers, in Jorge Masvidal, Robbie Lawler, and Darren Till.
This night was also a huge victory for Cowboy's record book, as he now moves into some elite UFC company, and will likely take off with the record.
Let's hope this win does some good for Cowboy, and that the man who has proven the phrase "anytime, anywhere" to be true makes one last run.
