Knockout! Watch Alex Morono demolish Donald Cerrone early at UFC Vegas 26

Alex Morono made the most out of his co-main event bid earlier tonight (Sat., May 8, 2021) at UFC Vegas 26 live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the welterweight veteran finished UFC legend Donald Cerrone via first-round TKO (punches).

Both fighters were scoring early but it was Morono who was landing the harder shots. Cerrone displayed some good head movement along the way but made a mistake during an exchange in the center of the Octagon. Morono ducked an attack and landed a beautiful right hand. “Cowboy” was stunned and Morono rushed in for heavy combinations along the cage and the eventual finish.

Check out the highlights above courtesy of UFC/ESPN.

What a big win for Morono who not only produces a finish in a makeshift co-main event fight, but also scores the biggest win of his career. Cerrone may be past his prime but he’s still a big name in the sport. This was a good showing for Morono, who now has eight wins in the UFC’s welterweight division.
