Justin Gaethje secured a third consecutive first round finish in the main event of UFC Fight Night 158 from Vancouver Saturday night, stopping Donald Cerrone.
The entire card streamed live on ESPN+ with Gaethje ending it with a bang.
A former World Series of Fighting champion, Gaethje added Cerrone to a resume that includes Edson Barboza and James Vick.
In the night’s co-headline bout, Glover Teixeira earned a victory vs. Nikita Krylov via split decision.
The biggest winner was Tristan Connelly, as he claimed both “Fight of the Night” bonus checks due to Michel Prazeres missing weight. He also picked up a portion of Prazeres’ purse.
