So much hype and now he’s dealing with a real one. Hernandez is slowing down and Cerrone is building off of it! #UFCBrooklyn

"Cowboy" Cerrone breaks his own record for most wins (22) and finishes (16) in UFC history.
He also passes Wanderlei Silva for most wins in UFC/WEC/PRIDE/Strikeforce combined history with 28. An all-time great. #UFCBrooklyn
