Free Fight: Nate Diaz vs. Donald Cerrone
I remember coming into this UFC 141 battle thinking Nate was going to get destroyed by the surging Cerrone, winner of nearly half a dozen fights in a row at the time. Well, I was happily wrong. What we ended up seeing was still a Fight of the Night between these two men, but we also saw the emergence of Nate Diaz as a legit badass in the lightweight division. This is what kicked off his run to the title, and it’s a hell of a fight.
