Donald Cerrone Continues To Make History

ufc 202

Donald Cerrone holds a win over Eddie Alvarez, the current UFC lightweight champion.

And after earning his third straight win at welterweight, “Cowboy” wants to move back down to 155 pounds and face Alvarez.

“Madison Square Garden, let’s do it,” Cerrone said. “I can make the weight.”

Cerrone earned his 18th career win inside the Octagon, tying him for second all-time with Matt Hughes after finishing Rick Story Saturday night at UFC 202. Cerrone sits one win behind leaders Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre on that chart.

After scoring an early takedown, Cerrone appeared to be in the head of Story, keeping him off balance with his offense from there on out. In the second, he landed a kick to the body that doubled Story over before connecting with a head-kick.

“I’ve been working a lot with Brandon Gibson,” he said. “I feel good, feel solid.”
