    Donald Cowboy Cerrone got ko'd in round 1 last night vs Gaethje in Vancouver. Cerrone is a good fighter but has taken too many head shots that have hurt him badly in his career. If you clip his chin he goes down. Don't get me wrong I love watching this dude fight but fear for his brain long term.

    Thoughts?

    Agreed. Great Fighter, it's a shame he never won a Title and given his recent losses it will likely never happen. Still a legend in the sport.

    Gaethje however, is the real deal. Been on an absolute tear last couple years.

    Cerrone can still make some money and have big fights against the likes of Poirier, Edgar, Diego Sanchez and maybe even Maia or Askren at 170. That being said, his championship-run days are over. I hear he is a free spender so hope he is saving some money in the twilight of his career.
