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.

UFC Fight Night 132 Primer: Jake Matthews, Shinsho Anzai Seek Spotlight

This Saturday from Singapore, Jake Matthews and Shinsho Anzai square off in a welterweight bout as part of the UFC Fight Night 132 prelims live on UFC Fight Pass.

With both fighters entering the Octagon on two-fight win streaks, the bout is a key one in the career path for Matthews and Anzai.

Matthews, a 23-year-old from Australia, has scored decisions over Li Jingliang and Bojan Velickovic since a pair of losses in 2016 to Andrew Holbrook and Kevin Lee. Overall, he is 13-3 including triumphs vs. Johnny Case, Vagner Rocha and Dashon Johnson.

Prior to signing with the UFC, Matthews was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter: The Nations. However, he was paired up with eventual finalist Olivier Aubin-Mercier, dropping a decision.

The promotion, though, saw more than enough to bring him on board. Matthews was a perfect 7-0 before coming to the UFC and has since went 6-3.

Like Matthews, Anzai has rebounded from a loss, winning back-to-back fights over Luke Jumeau – who Matthews bested during his run on the regional circuit – and Roger Zapata. The Zapata win came all the way back in 2015, as Anzai has fought just two since a 2014 loss to Alberto Mina.

The Mina fight was his welterweight and UFC debut, as he competed at middleweight where he captured the Pancrase title in 2014 with a win over Ryo Kawamura.

Along with his MMA resume, Mina was a winner of the ADCC Asia Trials in 2011 at two different weight classes and was a member of the 2005 All-Japan Junior Olympic Cup as an amateur, placing first at the 2008 All-Japan Combat Wrestling Championship.

He’s also fought as high as light heavyweight during his career, but the 32-year-old appears to have found a home at welterweight now.

Below is the current card for Saturday, which includes Donald Cerrone vs. Leon Edwards in the main event:

MAIN CARD (UFC Fight Pass/8 a.m. ET)

Welterweight: Donald Cerrone vs. Leon Edwards

Light Heavyweight: Ovince Saint Preux vs. Tyson Pedro

Female Flyweight: Jessica Eye vs. Jessica-Rose Clark

Welterweight: Li Jingliang vs. Daichi Abe

PRELIMINARY CARD (UFC Fight Pass/4:30 a.m. ET)

Bantamweight: Teruto Ishihara vs. Petr Yan

Bantamweight: Felipe Arantes vs. Song Yadong
