Taking place at the Singapore indoor stadium in Kallang, Singapore, UFC Fight Night Cerrone vs. Edwards streamed live and free on UFC Fight Pass. Featuring fan-favorite Donald Cerrone against Leon Edwards in the main event, the card also featured a heavy dose of local talent.
Experiencing an uncharacteristic three-fight losing skid, Cerrone had got back to winning ways against Yancy Medeiros in February. Looking to get back in a winning streak, ‘Cowboy’ had a tough challenge in the British southpaw nicknamed ‘Rocky.’
Throughout the show in Singapore, there were close contests, with two of the three first contests coming in as razor-thin split decisions. Things got more exciting as the night went on, including the bantamweight contest between Teruto Ishihara and Petr Yan.

Tough Night For Teruto
Continuing on through the card, two straight finishes by elbow were in the books as Song Yadong and Shane Young finished Felipe Arentes and Rolando Dy respectively in brutal fashion.
Jessica Eye and Li Jingliang opened the main card with a duo of unanimous decisions. Jessica Rose Clark and Daichi Abe were shut out on the judge’s scorecards.

Jake Matthews put in a great performance too, defeating Shinsho Anzai with a rear naked choke. Light heavyweights Ovince St-Preux and Tyson Pedro threw down in the co-main event of the evening.
OSP was able to lock in a kimura on Pedro, scoring his 23rd MMA win and bouncing back from his February submission defeat to Ilir Latifi. Finally, we reach the main event, Donald Cerrone vs. Leon Edwards.
Edwards and Cerrone banged it out in a thoroughly exciting and even affair. In the end, it was the crisp power strikes and damage that Edwards caused Cerrone that won him the fight.
‘Cowboy’ looked like a zombie, continually coming forward even after being opened up and bleeding heavily. Watch the highlights from Reddit below:
