UFC Vancouver: Donald Cerrone, Justin Gaethje Review Victories

Donald Cerrone and Justin Gaethje square off in one of the more hyped non-title main events this year Saturday night at UFC Vancouver [1].

The card airs live on ESPN+ [2] 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.
