Donald Cerrone is Coming for Nurmagomedov

UFC Fight Night 126 play-by-play and live results

After the fight, Cerrone revealed he still has big ambitions for his UFC career, as he confirmed he intends to move back to 155 pounds.

Early on in the round, Medeiros looked to be getting the better of the exchanges as he landed a number of thudding leg kicks and some cuffing right hands, but midway through the opening five minutes Cerrone began to figure out the range and his attractive counter striking began to catch Medeiros increasingly.

Last night, in the main event of the UFC's anticipated return to Austin, Texas, Donald Cerrone rebounded from a three-fight losing streak with a destructive, first-round stoppage of Yancy Medeiros.

The win came with two seconds left in the first round at UFC Austin, as Cerrone punched Medeiros to the canvas before striking more blows to his opponent before the referee Herb Dean stepped in to stop the fight.

With just seconds remaining in the round, Cerrone tagged Medeiros with a straight right hand.

Will moving back to 155 be the right move for Cerrone or should he stay at 170?

Medeiros went down at one point, but got back up and slapped hands with Cerrone. Khabib (Nurmagomedov), I'm coming, baby. "The Motown Phenom" rose up the UFC lightweight rankings in spectacular fashion to receive a title shot in October. UFC Fight Night 22 featured Nate Marquardt's first-round TKO stoppage of Rousimar Palhares.

"These big old boys [at welterweight] hit hard and they're a lot bigger, man" Cerrone added when asked by FS1 reporter Megan Olivi why he wants to return to 155lbs. "I don't care. I'm done with easy guys".

Cerrone went on to suggest that his promoters add a new 165-pound weight class, one of the weight classes which the Association of Boxing Commissions unanimously voted to add to the Unified Rules of MMA past year, but which the UFC has shown no interest in adopting.

They don't have to fight me. "They'll call me and tell me "We need you at 170" and I'll be like, 'OK'". The fight's in my mind, but I'm not worrying about it.
