Electrifying lightweights Donald Cerrone and Charles Oliveira hooked 'em up in a 155-pound scrap that had UFC on Versus 5 "Fight of the Night" written all over it coming into the Bradley Center in Milwauke, Wisconsin.

Unfortunately, Cerrone didn't let it didn't last that long.

"Cowboy" landed a huge body punch that sent Oliveira crashing to the canvas in the opening minutes of the fight. The Brazilian attempted to roll and survive, but Cerrone swarmed, landing a flurry of punches to a wounded (and grounded) Oliveira that forced the referee in charge of the action to step in and stop it.

Impressive.

Cerrone collected his third straight win since coming over to the promotion from World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), making short work of a very talented prospect who was looking to prove that he did indeed belong with the top fighters in the division.

Not tonight, "Do Bronx."

Cerrone, a former WEC number one contender, was disappointed in his post-fight speech that he didn't deliver the "Fight of the Night." But it could have been much worse.

Just ask Charles Oliveira, who might just be better suited in the 145-pound division.
