UFC on Versus 5 Results: Donald Cerrone Makes Quick Work of Charles Oliveira, Wins by TKO


UFC fighter Donald

Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone

Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone made quick work of his UFC on Versus 5 opponent, finishing Charles Oliveira in the first round of their meeting.

An overwhelmed Oliveira covered up while laying on his back and had no answer for “Cowboy,” falling via technical knockout.

Cerrone and Oliveira tested each other on the feet early. Cerrone landed a nice knee to his opponent’s midsection, but a low blow put a halt to action soon after. “Cowboy” was sharp on the feet from then on out and worked a pretty combination to Oliveira’s breadbasket that put him down. From there, Cerrone stood over Oleveira and rained punches down before referee Mario Yamasaki put a stop to the bout.

The finish came at 3:01of the opening round.

“I knew he was going to be right there in my face,” Cerrone said following the TKO victory. “This is the first fight for me to show my skills.”

The win stands as Cerrone’s third victory in the UFC with no losses since making his debut in the organization at UFC 126 in February earlier this year. The win-streak certainly speaks volumes about Cerrone’s position in the UFC’s deepest division. If the wave of victories continues, he could be in the mix for a title shot in no time at all.

Oliveira hasn’t seen a win since beating Efrain Escudero at UFC Fight Night: Marquardt vs. Palhares. Since then, he’s lost two fights as well as collecting a no contest. Prior to his last three outings, the young Brazilian fighter was undefeated.
