A lightweight bout was up next as Donald Cerrone (21-6, 1 NC) took on the main card dark horse, Adriano Martins (25-6).
Cerrone last fought and defeated Evan Dunham after a brilliant performance. He will look to win his second straight fight for the first time in two years.
Martins will only be making his second appearance in the UFC after submitting Daron Cruickshank in his debut. He will look for the biggest win of his career with a win over Cerrone.
Round 1: A hard kick to the body affected Cerrone. He wasn’t hurt for long though and followed Martins around. Martins was on par with the striking and was comfortable against Cerrone on the feet. Martins hit Cerrone with a group of punches and was throwing more even if his accuracy percentage may have been lower. Cerrone began to land to the legs and body of Martins which set up a low guard by Martins. Cerrone went high with a kick which Martins expected to come in low. He was hit flush and went out immediately. He was out before he hit the ground and he was so stiff that his feet stayed planted for a couple seconds before he fully tipped over.
Official Result: Donald Cerrone defeats Adriano Martins via Knockout (head kick) at 4:40 of Round 1
