Donald Cerrone:

“I definitely wish I could’ve gotten that win without taking so much damage from him at first. The shots he hit me with finally woke me up and I kind of snapped out of it. But I was finally able to hit him with some good shots and that last one sent him down. I scrambled to get his back and lock in the rear-naked choke and he wasn’t getting out of that.”
