    That Barboza fight was honestly the MOST impressed I've ever been with Cowboy.

    Mainly because he was losing that fight, but he found a way to win.
    That to me is the ESSENCE of mixed martial arts.

    He was hanging in there, but it looked like just a matter of time til he was going to get rocked on the feet.
    Instead of waiting for that to happen he lands a crisp jab, takes the back, and before Barboza even registers the switch from striking to grappling, Cowboy sinks in the choke.

    Absolutely impressive when a guy is "losing" in one area, and so he switches it to another.
    Respect Cowboy!

    It did look like barboza had started to hurt cowboy, but that cowboy gameface was impressive.

    Just before he got dropped barboza looked slightly frustrated that his shots 'seemed' to not have any effect.

    That was just an impressive fight for him. A tough match-up and he finished the fight. This is how guys earn fans and money.

    Hopefully that rematch will be what most of us expected in that first fight.

    I swear when I was watching that fight it looked like Cerrone's jaw got broken
    I thought he talked a bit funny after the fight, too.

    Cowboy has had so many fights and so many bonuses in a relatively short period of time. I just counted 14 bonuses between the UFC and WEC and 23 total fights between the two orgs. I'd liike to see where he ranks all time in terms of gross earnings.

    I swear when I was watching that fight it looked like Cerrone's jaw got broken and he didn't close it for quite some time. Nice to see him come out without an injury and ready to fight.

    I've said it before. He should train year round and be ready to step in anytime someone is injured. I wish there was more fighters like him. I'll throw down money to see him fight anyday. He deserves to be paid well.

    It does seem that way... Always thought that would have been a closer match up had Cerrone used his kicks instead of turning it into a straight boxing match.

    Awesome attitude. He represents Denver well. Except for his over tanning and irresponsible money management.

    When looking at who to book Cerrone with, he really can't have a "bad fight" in the bunch...except for maybe Pat Healy lol.

    I was hearing that they might want to hotshot a Khabib/Cerrone fight to build Khabib while the LW title gathers dust until the Pettis/Gil fight.

    I'd personally love to see Cerrone/Joe Lauzon....just jeezus that's an awesome FOTY matchup if there ever was one.

    Jorge Masvidal is another hell of an underrated talent, but really requires sound matchmaking to make exciting bouts and would like to see how he handles Cerrone.

    Word was that Josh Thomson was mulling over retirement and is pretty banged up(as always), but Punk/Cowboy would be excellent.

    Wouldn't be shocked if they book Cerrone/Miller, but I don't know if Jim wants to fight so soon between fights.

    I personally believe Abel Trujillo is incredibly overrated, but he and Cerrone could have some fireworks too.

    Then there's Michael Johnson and Myles Jury, both of whom are gradually building their resumes while they make a run upward at 155 but I'm not sure that either is an enticing matchup for Cerrone as they may game plan and work the outside to defuse a lot of Cerrone's exciting style.

    Michael Johnson should step up, that would be a great fight
