Lace preliminary fights of UFC 276 they left two withdrawals of characters that were important for Mixed Martial Arts.

Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, one of the most beloved characters in sports, decided to leave the gloves after a prolific career with 36 wins, 17 losses and 2 No Contest.

“I don’t love him anymore, this has been the longest camp of my career, I dont complain, but what better way to go, in Las Vegas, with a large audience and on the best stage. Thank you all for your support,” Cerrone said.

“Cowboy” fell to Jim Miller in a rematch of the duel they had eight years ago in which he had taken the victory.

On this occasion, Miller took advantage of a kick to the liver that connected to Cerrone at the start of the second round, dand immediately moved to get a very tight guillotine with which he took the victory, number 24 in the UFC, to become the fighter with the most victories in the history of the octagon.
