Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone is slated to move from welterweight back down to lightweight at the UFC’s inaugural event on ESPN+ on January 19. He’s been toiling away at 170 pounds for the past three years, but after finding mediocre results, he’s returning to 155 pounds where he’ll square off with Alexander Hernandez at UFC Fight Night: Cejudo vs. Dillashaw in Brooklyn, N.Y.
That’s not to say that welterweight was all bad for Cerrone, the results were simply mixed.
There was no questioning his latest performance, however, as he made quick work of “Platinum” Mike Perry, finishing his bombastic former teammate inside of the first round.
Ahead of Cerrone’s match-up with Hernandez, check out his full fight with Perry, where he was in true Cowboy form.
