UFC Vegas 26 live blog: Donald Cerrone vs. Alex Morono – MMA Root

This is the UFC Vegas 26 live blog by Donald Cerrone and Alex Morono, the main protagonist of Saturday’s fight card at UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

The Welterweight match met after Cerrone’s originally planned opponent. Ultimate Fighter 1 Winner and former teammate Diego Sanchez was removed from the match and released from the UFC after refusing to confirm that he did not suffer from any neurological problems, as MMA Fighting previously reported.

Octagon master Alex Morono quickly stepped in to accept the match with Cerrone, who was officially 0-4 in a non-competitive match in his previous five matches. Cerrone’s most recent win came in May 2019 with a decision on Al Iaquinta.

Morono returns five months later after making a decision to former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. He traversed between win and loss on the previous four occasions, taking wins against Max Griffin and Rhys McKee, and defeats against Pettis and Khaos Williams.
