By FCF Staff
Donald Cerrone reminded fans at UFC Fight Night 83 that he’s more than just a dangerous striker, as the veteran fighter tapped out Alex Oliveira in highlight reel fashion.
Oliveira came out aggressively, and threatened Cerrone with heavy shots, but the latter countered with a nicely timed takedown. From there, Cerrone passed into fullmount, and set up a beautifully executed triangle-choke to score the victory.
After the bout, which took place at 170, Cerrone said he’s willing to take fights at both lightweight and welterweight moving forward.
