Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone’s 8-fight win streak came to a screeching halt on Saturday night when he faced UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos for the second time in his career.
It took dos Anjos just 66 seconds to put an end to the fight with the skilled Cerrone who was hurt by a knee, a kick and a barrage of punches from the champion that caused referee Herb Dean to call an end to the bout.
Cerrone took the time to congratulate the champion on his win and it looks like he will get back on the horse and look to collect more wins.
@Cowboycerrone thank you was an honor fighting you

This sport is the Highest Highs and some of the lowest Lows!!
No one to blame and no fingers to point. Just dust off and ride again
