Cerrone is coming off a spectacular performance at UFC on ESPN+ 1 this past January, knocking out the highly-touted prospect Alexander Hernandez in only two rounds in his return to 155 pounds (highlights), handing Alex his first loss in nearly six years. The win was “Cowboy’s” second straight, as he had submitted Mike Perry prior in Welterweight action.
As for Iaquinta, he is fresh off a dominant five-round performance over Kevin lee, defeating “The Motown Phenom” for a second time at UFC on FOX 31 last December. Prior to that, “Ragin’ Al” came up short in his bid to win UFC gold after losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223. That fight, however, was given to Iaquinta on just a day’s notice.
Now, both men will look to get into the very crowded and cloudy championship title picture at 155 pounds when they collide on Sunday May 5th.
