On Wednesday night, UFC lightweight Rafael dos Anjos (pictured) posted the biggest win of his career by beating Donald Cerrone. Dos Anjos was a slight underdog against “Cowboy,” but he ended up taking a (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) unanimous decision victory home to Brazil with him.
Dos Anjos had easily taken both of the opening rounds, but Cerrone came storming back in the final stanza. However, it was too little too late for Cerrone.
Dos Anjos has now quietly rattled off five straight victories in the UFC’s talent-rich lightweight division. Cerrone, who was just one win away from sniffing a championship affair two years ago, has now dropped two of his past three bouts.
UFC Fight Night took place inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana.
