Right in the feels

The fight business is rough.

Rafael dos Anjos only needed 66 seconds to dismantle Donald Cerrone and defend his lightweight belt in the main event at UFC on Fox 17.

Prior to the event, Cowboy was riding an amazing eight-fight win-streak and was hoping to bring that coveted golden strap home with him for his terminally ill grandmother, who is passing away from pulmonary hypetension.

The UFC released a touching video of Cerrone explaining why his grandmother was his inspiration for his title fight last week which you can watch below.

Cerrone’s first post since the loss was a photo to Instagram, of his grandmother and himself hugging with beaming smiles.

He opted to upload it without a caption as it really says it all.
