Donald Cerrone mötte under nattens gala Mike Perry under UFC Denver och segrade via submission med armlås i första ronden.
I en intervju efter matchen berrättade Cerrone att han kände att han på något sätt lyckades skada motståndaren Perry.
Via MMA Fighting:
Once I seen the clock, there was 30 seconds left — the monitor was right above me. I was like, oh I better spin for this armbar. I did. He should have rolled the other way out of it, I don’t know why he didn’t. I was like, ‘Gotcha.’ So I went belly down on it. I was just gonna take it until the referee pulled me off.
I felt it pop before I went belly down. So the rest was just tearing the chicken wing off, yeah. I was taking it home with me.
Det var Perry som tog det hela till mattan, vilket Cerrone inte hade förväntat sig. Men det var ingenting han tackade nej till.
[It] super surprised me [when he took me down]. When he reached in and took a body lock on me, I wasn’t reaching around and defending it. I was like, yeah, have it. There you go. I just crumbled. And when I was in side control, I was waiting for him to [throw] big elbows. He was just breathing heavy. I was just like, I’ll just lay here and let him tire out and spin and get guard. Yeah, I don’t know why he did that.
Cerrone tog med detta igen domslutsförlusten mot Leon Edwards under Fight Night 132 i juni och har nu även rekordet för antal vinster i UFC med 21 segrar. Han har nu ett sammanlagt record på 34-11.
