Lightweight fighter Nate Diaz swarmed to the most significant win of his career in the Ultimate Fighting Championship by landing one punch after another Friday against Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone.
Diaz halted Cerrone's string of wins by snapping his head with one punch after another to win a unanimous decision in the co-main event of UFC 141 in Las Vegas. Diaz consistently landed jabs, crosses and straight punches with both hands to rack up a 258-to-66 edge in total strikes, according to statistics from Compustrike.
Cerrone found some success with his legs, especially with strikes to Diaz's legs and the occasional kick to the head. Diaz also hit the deck several times after Cerrone tripped him or swept his leg. Compustrike saw Cerrone landing 31 of 49 leg strikes. (MORE>>>)
