UFC Vancouver: Donald Cerrone, Justin Gaethje Review Victories

Over the years, Cerrone and Gaethje have both earned signature wins. Two of those have come recently for the fighters, who meet Saturday.

Donald Cerrone and Justin Gaethje square off in one of the more hyped non-title main events this year Saturday night at UFC Vancouver.

The card airs live on ESPN+ from the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Cerrone and Gaethje are both top contenders in the UFC’s lightweight division, meaning a win over the other could be the final push needed to challenging for the belt.

Back in 2018, “Cowboy” picked up a first round submission via armbar over Mike Perry. The submission finish was his first since a 2016 victory over Alex Oliveira via triangle choke and marked the 17th win of his career by submission.

After a pair of tough losses to former interim UFC lightweight champion Dustin Poirier and former UFC and Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez, Gaethje rebounded in 2018 with a first round knockout of James Vick.

The finish was the start of a two-fight win streak for Gaethje that also includes a first round knockout of Edson Barboza from this past March.
