Cerrone, who talked before the fight about moving back down to lightweight, recorded the 15th first-round stoppage of his career. Yancy Medeiros, meanwhile, was skyrocketing up the rankings.

While it's no surprise considering the history of Cerrone and the all-action Medeiros (15-5, 1 NC) that the fight was entertaining from the opening seconds, the incredible sportsmanship shown by both almost stole the headlines.

Old guard vs. new guard was the underlying story line - so would the old war horse fend off the Hawaiian invasion? The two slugged it out from the opening bell, and even embraced after Medeiros slipped. Cerrone tries for a knee tap takedown, but it's stuffed. He then ate a spinning kick from Medeiros.

With just seconds remaining in the round, Cerrone tagged Medeiros with a straight right hand.

Donald Cerrone was able to finish Yancy Medeiros just before the horn sounded.

Body punch for Medeiros. jab for Cerrone. A right hand landed for Medeiros. Body kick for Cerrone.

The pair began engaging in a standup war, with Cerrone getting the better of it.

They break free and Cerrone lands a right hand. "That's what Yancy and I both look for". "Let's go, '" Cerrone said. Cowboy follows up with the ground-and-pound and that's all she wrote.

In another great show of sportsmanship, Medeiros gave Cerrone's beloved grandma a hug after the fight, capping off a feelgood, action-packed evening in Austin.
