Donald Cerrone vs. Charles Oliveira (lightweight)

Round 1: Cerrone strikes first with a solid knee to the body. Oliveira fires back with a strong jab to the chin. Cerrone fires off another knee and fends off an Oliveira takedown attempt. He follows with a punch and kick combination, but the kick was apparently low and the referee halts action briefly. Cerrone goes right back to the punch-kick combinations, edging ahead of Oliveira, who is also connection, but not working in combination. Cerrone lands a hard hook to the body followed by a knee that hurts Oliveira and puts him on the mat, Cerrone follows him down and finishes in a flurry of punches that has Mario Yamasaki calling a halt to the fight.
