UFC Denver also featured a welterweight bout between hometown favorite Donald Cerrone and Mike Perry. “Cowboy” ended up winning that bout via first-round submission. While there was some banter going into that bout due to Cerrone’s split from Jackson-Wink MMA, “Cowboy” showed what truly matters. Cerrone had his infant son enter the Octagon and proudly held him up to the delight of the Denver crowd.
Fans also got to see prospect Maycee Barber dismantle Hannah Cifers. After the destruction, Barber called for a bout with Mackenzie Dern. The two once competed under the Legacy Fighting Alliance banner, but a bout between the two never materialized. Visit the MMA News homepage for the aftermath of UFC Denver.
