In the second fight of the UFC on FOX 11 main card, Donald Cerrone stepped into the Octagon against Edson Barboza in a Lightweight fight.

Barboza got off first as he hurt Cerrone in the opening seconds of the first round. "Cowboy" was able to score a quick takedown and apparently recover though. Heading into the midpoint of the round, Barboza let loose with a series of hooks that forced a stunned Cerrone out of the pocket. An unexpected, quick, sharp jab dropped Barboza and sent the Brazillian to the mat. Cerrone saw his opportunity and immediate wrapped his opponent up in a rear naked choke. It was only a matter of time before Barboza finally tapped.

Donald Cerrone submits Edson Barboza by rear naked choke at 3:15 of round 1.
