The 31-year-old used a bit more motivation to batter Jury's legs, nearly submitting the undefeated lightweight with a rear-naked choke in Round 1.

Donald Cerrone is clearly on a tear within the Ultimate Fighting Championship. At UFC 182, he dominated Myles Jury to earn his sixth straight win, dating back to UFC 167 in 2013. With this win, Cerrone has entered a peculiar place where he's a major draw within the division but just outside the place to demand a title shot.
