While even Cerrone was disappointed with his inability to finish, I think the leg kicks and Rochas reaction to them was a visible finish regardless.

Its clear that if Rocha had to continue the fight any longer, he couldnt have sustained many more leg kicks.

I think Cerrone was just hoping he could finish him with the leg kicks, but Rocha was tough and kept throwing some wild punches that were at least catching Cerrone just enough to make him a bit more timid than we'd all have liked to see.

Its too bad the striking was so one sided that we didnt get to see more of a ground battle, as I think Cerrones skills on the mat are worthy of note and I think fans of the UFC that didnt watch much WEC havent seen yet.

Cerrone probably has to get better at his wrestling still, especially if he doesnt want to suffer a similar fate as Miguel Torres, in being a great exciting striker/submission artist but complacent in takedown defense costing him decision loses.

If he can become offensive with his takedowns more like GSP, I think he can really be a devastating fighter because of his great standup, great submission game giving him the ability to win fights in both realms.

I hope to see him one day fight for the UFC belt, simply because I think if you put a guy who will stand and trade with him, he'll oblige and make some VERY exciting fights for the fans... he's that type of fighter.

Wow. Rocha didnt even want to fight in the second half of the fight. Props to Cerrone for methodically picking him apart. Very tough to finish someone who isnt willing to exchange and at some points doing his best Kalib Starnes impersonation.

While I am sure Rocha is amazing on the ground, if you cant get the fight there, and you are down the first 2 rounds, you gotta go broke or at least exchange.

I wouldnt be surprised if DW went straight to a cut for Rocha, esp in such a deep division.

Man Rocha was hurting early. Cartons did good, but I agree that he should have been able to get a finish here.

Pretty delusional breakdown of the fight. Vagner was trying to fight throughout he was just getting tooled and his leg was hurt badly. The booing in the third was stupid it was most likely ignorant people like you doing it though. He was trying to circle away and get his back off the cage and Cowboy was cutting him off he wasn't running away. Hell he was more aggressive throwing punches than Cowboy was the entire fight and he had no idea how to strike. He landed on Cerrone a bunch of times he just has zero power because he has bad technique and is tiny he looked like a 135 pounder almost. I don't know what people want from the guy it was clear he was trying his best he didn't ever look like he gave up to me.

Only Cerrone can dominate a guy like that and then come out and say he's disappointed because he didn't fight to win.
