It was the fight fans were waiting for. The people’s main event. But after two rounds, it was a doctor, not Cowboy Cerrone or Tony Ferguson, who put an end to the planned three rounds between Cowboy and El Cucuy.

You know a fight card is great when two of the most beloved fighters aren’t the main event or the co-main event. At UFC 238, it was just that – Donald Cerrone versus Tony Ferguson. Two of the most loved fighters in the UFC. While being adored, they’re also entertaining when inside the Octagon. Their fight was no different, all the way up until the unfortunate ending.

That saw Donald Cerrone with a broken nose (not helped by a late punch at the end of the second from Ferguson) and a swollen eye. Cowboy made the crucial mistake of blow airing out his broken nose. His face immediately ballooned up, and the doctor was brought in, waving off the fight. Ferguson earned the TKO win, but not how he wanted.

Here are some of the best reactions for Donald Cerrone versus Tony Ferguson at UFC 238!

It was crazier than we thought.

They’re both the classiest, so much love for them! 

For as long as it lasted it was. 


Donald Cerrone is a mad man but that’s why we love him.

It was great while it lasted! 

Indeed a fun fight for as long as it lasted.

Crazy that the guy who won was more bummed than the guy who lost.
