Cerrone went one-on-one with fellow veteran Jim Miller inside the Octagon to determine who would be the recordholder for most UFC victories. After what was mostly a grappling contest in the first round, Miller came out in the second round and was able to pull guard and lock Cerrone up in a guillotine choke.
“Cowboy” tried to fight out of it as best he could but was unable to break out and forced to tap. After the loss, Cerrone was interviewed by Joe Rogan, where he admitted that he just fought the last fight of his career.
Cerrone said he doesn’t love fighting anymore, and he’s going to go on to become a movie star, after which he received a huge ovation from the crowd.
