Donald Cerrone ’s winless skid hit six fights on Saturday when he fell to Alex Morono in the first round at UFC on ESPN 24 . In the game of standing toe-to-toe, Morono’s (19-7 MMA, 8-4 UFC) power won out as he hurt and mauled “Cowboy” (36-16 MMA, 24-13 UFC) with strikes for a standing TKO at the 4:40 mark of Round 1. Morono stepped into the fight as a replacement for Diego Sanchez on just six days’ notice, and he was thrilled to get the job done. “I’ve got some mixed emotions right now and just happy to win for Texas and my team,” Morono said in his post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier. “My goal in this fight was to focus on my focus and not deviate.” Delivering on short notice! @AlexMoronoMMA stops Cowboy in RD 1! #UFCVegas26 pic.twitter.com/8ahCkOJsAM — UFC (@ufc) May 9, 2021 The welterweight bout was the UFC on ESPN 24 co-main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
