UFC Fighter Refuses To Win When Opponent Slips — Incredible Sportsmanship

Following his victory over Yancy Medeiros at welterweight on Sunday night, Donald Cerrone revealed that he is plotting a return to the lightweight division next.

Ultimately this classy move and the respect he showed was rewarded, as Cerrone would go on to win via TKO in the first round.

That's a little above and beyond the norm, but not unheard of, but what happened after their fight was something special.

UFC Fight Night 126 was a somewhat underrated card, to begin with, and delivered in a huge way--violence and finishes galore.

However, he's not looking for easy fights when he steps back down to lightweight, and instead wants to get in the Octagon with one of the divisions most feared fighters.

Barcelona are great even without Neymar - Willian
Only Cristiano Ronaldo (56) and Lionel Messi (38) have scored more goals in the Champions League knockout phase than Muller (21). Chelsea hit the woodwork twice in the first half before scoring the opening goal of the game in the 61st minute through Willian.

Medeiros immediately ran over to the side of the cage where Cowboy's grandma was, leapt over it, and crouched down before her, listening intently to what were, no doubt, words of wisdom, and hugging it out.

"I want 155 [pounds]", Cerrone said.

"I keep calling these guys out, Michael Chiesa, Kevin Lee - these guys turn down fights with me", Vick told Jimmy Smith following his victory. They'd circle, and Medeiros was able to land with the right again, then double up on it. Cowboy flashed as if he was moving for a takedown, but backed off. Medeiros then slipped, and Cerrone backed off, allowing him to recover - they embarced again before getting back to work. "Khabib [Nurmagomedov], I'm coming baby".

He added: "These big old boys hit hard and they're a lot bigger".

Nurmagomedov is now set to fight in the main event of UFC 223 and his opponent is going to be UFC Interim Lightweight Champion Tony Ferguson. Who knows, I'll just fight whatever they tell me. But either way he's still one of the most exciting fighters on the UFC roster at either weight class, and one of the most active as well. "They'll call me and say, 'We need you at 170, ' and I'll be like, 'OK, '" Cowboy admitted.
