Check out the full-fight video highlights of Justin Gaethje stopping Donald Cerrone in the UFC Vancouver main event.

The UFC Vancouver main event did not disappoint when the promotion’s #5 ranked 155-pounder Justin Gaethje knocked out the #4 ranked Donald Cerrone in the opening round. Gaethje got right to work with his leg kicks, which opened up his heavy hands. Cowboy was throwing back, but he just couldn’t withstand the sheer power that Gaethje brought to the table. Gaethje knocked down Cowboy with a right hand, and then as soon as Cerrone stood back up, he was dropped again. At that point it was academic. Gaethje was forced to followup with a set of ground strikes before the referee was willing to call off the match. This makes three-straight knockout wins for Gaethje, who in his post-fight speech expressed his want for a shot at the belt in his next outing.
