Early in round one, Pettis landed a hard right hand counter to the face. The two traded punches with Pettis clearly getting the better of things. Then Pettis attempted a cartwheel kick, but was hit with a knee for his efforts. Nice jab by Pettis. After winning the striking battle for a period of time-inlcuding a knee jumping off the Octagon wall- Pettis hit home with two hard left roundhouse kicks to his opponent’s body which hurt. Then moments later came another one, which sent Cerrone to the canvas. And that was that.
Pettis was absolutely dominant tonight.
