Donald Cerrone's one-strike capability is a big reason why he's one of the UFC's most popular fighters.
The Jackson's MMA fighter proved why again on Saturday night. The "Cowboy" used a big head kick out of nowhere to finish off Adriano Martins in their main-card bout at UFC on FOX 10 at Chicago's United Center.
The round was back and forth up until the finishing sequence, as the Brazilian Martins, who entered the bout the winner of 12 of his past 13 fights, matched Cerrone's standup move for move and showed good scrambling ability when the fight hit the ground.
But Cerrone, a former kickboxer, landed a picture-perfect right shin to the chin and neck. Martins was knocked cold; Cerrone held back from delivering more punishment before referee John McCarthy could officially call it off at 4:40 of the round.
Cerrone, who has 12 post-fight bonuses between his UFC and WEC days, improved to 22-6 (1 NC) and won for the third time in his past four fights.
