Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone returned to the win column against another ‘Cowboy’ in Alex Oliveira in the main event of tonight’s (Sunday, February 21, 2016) UFC Fight Night 83 from the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and he earned $50,000 for the event’s first “Performance of the Night” bonus by stopping the fill-in Brazilian with a quick first round triangle after some early rough spots.
Middleweight Chris Camozzi earned the second “Performance of the Night” for his swarming first round TKO over longtime veteran Joe Riggs.
“Fight of the Night” rightfully went to women’s bantamweights Lauren Murphy and Kelly Faszholz, who fought a rousing war on the preliminary card that Murphy won by a very late stoppage. Kudos to Faszholz for taking a tough fight on short notice and contributing half of an entertaining battle. If you enjoyed this story, please share it on social media!
