UFC Fight Night 132 Results: Donald Cerrone Too Old and Slow for Leon Edwards

Donald Cerrone has been fighting a long, long time, and has made a ton of fans along the way because of his aggressive, take-no-prisoners style. Sadly, all those fans must now watch as their hero ages out of being effective in the Octagon while being fed to younger guys.

One such younger guy is Brit Leon Edwards, who’s done well in the UFC’s UK circuit, and will likely make the jump to pay-per-view on the back of someone like “Cowboy”. This is our UFC Fight Night 132 main event.

I want to say Cerrone revealed flashes of his old self, but that wouldn’t be true. He was too small against Edward’s larger frame, and his speed – which made him dangerous in the past – has left him. So we got to see Cowboy bloodied in the first, and throughout the bout, Cerrone was getting out-struck at distance with Edward’s body-kicks, and out-struck in close with Edward’s elbows and knees.

Cerrone scored a takedown in Rounds 4 and 5, but he was otherwise stymied, and when time ran out there was no mystery as to who won.

Edwards Vs. Cerrone Full Fight Video Highlights

Leon Edwards extended his current win streak to six earlier today (Sat., June 23, 2018) at UFC Fight Night 132 live on Fight Pass from inside Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore, when he defeated Donald Cerrone via unanimous decision in the main event.

Edwards controlled most of the fight. He was stronger inside and landed the more meaningful shots over the course of five rounds, including some vicious body kicks and slicing elbows inside. “Cowboy” would battle back in the later frames and land his own offense, but it just wasn’t enough to edge out “Rocky” on the scorecards.

In the end, it was Edwards who walked away with the unanimous decision win, leaving a bloodied Cerrone with his fourth loss in his last five fights.

Check out below for some of the most memorable action from Edwards’ main event clash with Cerrone:

With this performance, Edwards captures the biggest victory of his career thus far and pushes himself further up the 170-pound ladder. The UFC’s welterweight division is one of the most jam-packed factions around, but six in a row should put the 26-year-old Englishman in good position to contend among the elite heading into the second half of 2018.
