UFC 276 is in the books and there’s a lot of information to distinguish from it. “Biggest Playing Cards of the Year” of the Year
If you separate promoter checklists You will remember The “biggest card of the year” is basically the card being promoted. (It’s next to “So is the Greatest of All Time” versus “So” and So” regardless of who the current champion is.) But the UFC has more or less made a habit of overlaying their July photoshoots. to close the scene International Fight Week, which features the annual Fan Expo (UFC X) and the annual UFC Hall of Fame ceremony.
This year was no exception. Two title battles Opponent’s number one tournament some old champs rising star player something for everyone It was all done in the absence of Dana White, who chose to take a vacation during the show, he was almost certainly in the front and center.
What’s really amazing is that UFC 276 is almost as good as the fight itself. are the many talking points that emerge from it. Let’s take a look at the biggest ones.
Cowboy Cerrone rides out into the sunset

One UFC cowboy named Donald Cerrone didn’t leave there. but must stand and applaud
Newer fans to the sport pretty much know cowboys for their trademark hats and entrance themes (obviously Kid Rock’s “cowboy”), but there were times when Cerrone was a real killer in the light and later versions. in the welterweight He is also the hardest working person in the sport. collect anyone’s thoughts Anytime, Anywhere, as Jim Miller noted, after their fight. we see less and less every day
Cerrone is one of those sports that is built on personality. He is generous with the media, although he doesn’t like to ask the same questions over and over again while losing weight. His grandmother and later sons Dacson Danger and Riot River became the MMA dynasties themselves.
But above all, he had shown. He had never held a gold in a major promotion. but fought for the title three times in the WEC (one for the temporary belt twice for the undisputed position) and once in the UFC itself. His kicks are the stuff of nightmares. if you see it You won’t forget that Cerrone hit Myles Jury on them like he was hitting a particularly stubborn mule. He kicked in the head several times and was equally dangerous on the ground, even during his career. Until the last skid occurred, Cerrone made his KO performance of Matt Brown at UFC 206 unforgettable. The match ended with Yanzi Mederos, Mike Perry and another head-kick that Anthony Hernandez served to remind the field that Cerrone was a shooter who shouldn’t sleep. on
But the most amazing thing about Cerrone is his honesty. Despite being the strongest person in the sport of able-bodied men As the dust clears following the loss of Jim Miller, Cowboy admits he doesn’t love fighting anymore. that he would not miss a sleepless night His retirement, which finally came to UFC 276, was the biggest relief ever.
Cowboy will be missed – but credit him for realizing his journey is over.
