Sunday's main event at UFC Fight Night 126 in Austin, Texas, was promoted as a fighter's fight with two of the sport's most game competitors in Donald Cerrone and Yancy Medeiros.

The fight didn't last long, but it's safe to say it didn't disappoint, as Cerrone knocked Medeiros out with just seconds remaining in the first round after a back-and-forth war.

If you blinked, you missed a lot in the round between the Hawaiian and the New Mexico native, as Medeiros came out looking for another Fight of the Night against Cerrone, staying in front of Cowboy the whole time despite eating a lot of punches.

Medeiros landed some haymakers but never wobbled Cerrone, who kept calm, waited for Medeiros to slow down and then began to pick apart the Hawaiian with his superior counter-striking.

While referees are usually criticized for stopping fights too early, this stoppage was correct, as Medeiros' legs fell out from under him as he fell to the canvas. Cerrone pounced on Medeiros and got the finish with a combination of strikes to snap his three-fight losing streak.

Here's the night's final results from UFC Fight Night Austin's main card.
