The UFC Fight Night 59: McGregor vs. Siver which takes place at the TD Garden in Boston, MA. on January 18, 2015 has added a lightweight tussle featuring two of the divisions more crowd pleasing fighters.
Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone had four fights in the Octagon in 2014, and he won them all, each performance more impressive than the other. Stars like Jim Miller, Edson Barboza and Eddie Alvarez fell hard to Cerrone, Alvarez being the only fighter to make it the full 5 rounds. Four fights, four wins and four stoppages for Cerrone in the year 2014, not sure who wins Fighter of the Year but those numbers make a strong case for “Cowboy”.
Myles Jury had a pretty good 2014 himself, defeating two fighters with high esteem and quite a fan base, first there was the 3 round dissection of Diego Sanchez, then the TKO of Japanese legend Takanori Gomi in front of his home crowd; Japan and what could be called his “home field” Saitama Super Arena. The undefeated Jury is looking to extend his undefeated record against another fan favorite in Boston on January 18th.
