UFC Vancouver: Cowboy v Gaethje - Big fight preview
Barely a week after the dust has settled on a historic box office event in Abu Dhabi at UFC 242, the world’s premier mixed martial arts promotion returns to action with a scintillating Fight Night card in Vancouver, Canada.
Headlined by fan favourite duo Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone versus Justin Gaethje, almost 14,000 fans are expected to pack into Rogers Arena – home of the iconic Vancouver Canucks ice hockey franchise – to witness one of the most eagerly-anticipated main events of the year.
Cerrone, who comes into the bout on the back of a controversial defeat to Tony Ferguson at UFC 238, has forged a legacy for himself as one of the gamest fighters in the promotion over the course of his storied career.
The 36-year-old is a multiple-time world title challenger, a perennial contender and one of the most exciting athletes in the sport – a cocktail of ingredients that has seen his reputation stay largely intact despite 12 career defeats in 49 fights.
Having pocketed fight night bonuses in four consecutive fights leading into this weekend, Cowboy’s precision striking and blood-and-guts bravery led him to wins over Mike Perry, Alexander Hernandez and Al Iaquinta before coming unstuck against Ferguson.
In Saturday’s showdown against Gaethje, Cowboy has the perfect opponent to help secure his fifth bonus on the spin, taking on a man who has made his name as one of the most recklessly violent men in mixed martial arts.
A dominant lightweight champion in the World Series of Fighting promotion, Gaethje made his long-awaited move over to the UFC in 2017, embarking on an electric five-fight journey through a division stacked with elite talent.
His 3-2 record since joining the UFC almost seems a little unfair on the Arizona man; back-to-back defeats against Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier arguably enhanced Gaethje’s reputation as the 30-year-old dragged one former champ and one future interim champ into deep waters during successive wars.
Vicious knockout wins against James Vick and Edson Barboza – for which Gaethje pocketed his fourth and fifth consecutive bonuses - have The Highlight back on track and climbing the rankings.
Another statement victory this weekend would surely see Gaethje’s need catapulted into the title picture.
Can Cowboy crash the party – or will Gaethje continue his breathless assault on the lightweight championship?
