The bout served as a rematch as the pair previously collided in 2014, with ‘Cowboy’ emerging victorious by way of knockout.

Donald Cerrone (36-17 MMA) was looking to snap a six fight winless streak this evening. The veteran fighter had not tasted victory since May of 2019 when he defeated Al laquinta via unanimous decision.

Meanwhile, Jim Miller (35-16 MMA) was coming into UFC 276 with 2 knockout wins in a row against Nikolas Motta in February of this year and Erick Gonzalez in October of 2021.

Tonight’s ‘Miller vs. Cerrone’ rematch proved to be a fun back and forth affair for as long as it lasted. After an entertaining round one, Miller was able to jump on a guillotine choke early in the early moments of round two which forced ‘Cowboy’ to tapout.
