After some rescheduling and retooling, Dana White finally has himself a card for UFC 249. Among the most interesting fights is a rematch between Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and Anthony Pettis, who met once prior back in 2013. Pettis had the upper hand in the duo's first meeting, dispatching Cerrone inside of the first round.
Cowboy hoped to use his height and reach advantage to keep Pettis at bay, but Milwaukee's own "Showtime" didn't back down and laid some haymakers. Cerrone was never comfortable in the ring, and Pettis sensed that just before he ended the fight in Round 1 with a body kick that had Cerrone dead to rights.
Pettis became the first UFC fighter in history to stop Cerrone, which is fitting given what a violent and aggressive operator he can be.
Cowboys will fight anyone at any time, but guys who take the fight to him like Pettis did have proven to be problematic for the most prolific winner in the history of UFC. We'll find out in a few weeks whether Cerrone has learned from his mistakes or if he will once again end up in a bloody pulp on the mat.
