UFC Fight Night 132 live results: Donald Cerrone vs. Leon Edwards

Welcome to F4WOnline.com's live coverage of UFC Fight Night 132: Cowboy vs. Edwards, emanating from the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.

The Octagon heads back to Singapore for the first time in just over a year with a welterweight showdown that could be among the best fights of the year at the end of the event.

Popular welterweight Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone keeps up with his moniker as the busiest fighter on the UFC roster, going for his 21st UFC win as he takes on Leon Edwards, winner of five straight fights, in the five-round headline bout.

Cerrone broke a three-fight losing skid in his last bout in February, and he looks to keep his name in the title picture as he goes for back-to-back wins. Edwards finds himself firmly in the top-15 of the UFC rankings, and he guns for the biggest win of his career after running his win streak to five in March.

Also on the main card, in the co-main event, Ovince Saint Preux looks to bounce back into the win column when he takes on Tyson Pedro, who is looking to notch his second straight win. Women's flyweights will also grace the Octagon, as Jessica-Rose Clark looks to make it 3-0 at 125 pounds in the UFC as she battles Jessica Eye, who is gunning for her second straight win since moving back to 125 pounds.

Follow along with our live coverage of the event beginning at 4:30 a.m. Eastern time with preliminary action all the way through the main card.


> Ji Yeon Kim (7-1-2, 1-1 UFC) vs. Melinda Fabian (4-3-2, 0-0-1 UFC)
Women's Flyweights

First round was entirely on the feet and consisted mostly of both ladies just throwing punches at each other with not much in the way of defence. They seemed to be landing a similar amount but Kim's punches were doing more damage as Fabian had swelling around her left eye and a cut just off her nose that was bleeding early. Kim hurt her with a flurry with about 30 seconds left in the round and Fabian clinched up on the cage for the rest of the round. 10-9 Kim

Again the round was entirely on the feet and again it was really close. Kim landed the more significant strikes but the strikes landed were almost even. Again, Kim rocked Fabian with a combo with about 30 seconds left. Fabian went for a takedown but ended up on her back as the round ended. 10-9 Kim, 20-18 overall

Kim started to slow down a bit and took some damage in the third which again was all on the feet. Fabian clinched up on the cage with about 2 minutes left and managed to hold her there for the remained of the round. Both were landing knees to the body but Fabian was landing the harder shots. 10-9 Fabian but 29-28 Kim overall

Official result - Ji Yeon Kim (8-1-2) by split decision (29-28 x 2;  28-29)

> Jenel Lausa (7-4, 1-2 UFC) vs. Ulka Sasaki (20-5-2, 3-4 UFC)

Sasaki got a takedown almost immediately and held Lausa down for most of the round. He briefly got up a couple of times and was taken right down. In the last minute, Sasaki finally moved into side control and then quickly got mount and landed some hard punches, doing damage. Lausa actually had the hardest shots with some elbows during the brief time standing but not enough to take the round. 10-9 Sasaki

Lausa landed some good shots early in the second, including a front kick that rocked Sasaki. Sasaki was stuffed on a few takedown attempts but finally secured one about 2 minutes in. Sasaki worked his way to mount fairly quickly and did a bunch of damage with ground and pound. He then took the back and quickly secured a rear naked choke. Lausa tapped almost instantly.

Official result - Ulka Sasaki (21-5-2) by submission (rear naked choke) at 4:04 of the 2nd round

Sasaki called out Sergio Pettis in his post-fight interview. That's a risky fight for Pettis if he takes it because he's pretty much secured a title shot so has nothing to gain from beating a lower ranked guy like Sasaki but plenty to lose. 

> Matt Schnell (11-4, 1-2 UFC) vs. Naoki Inoue (11-0, 1-0 UFC)

Very similar to the last fight in that both guys were landing a similar amount of punches and it was entirely on the feet. Schnell seemed to land the harder punches as well as leg kicks but Inoue did a good job keeping up with him and did some damage as well. Clsoe round but I go 10-9 Schnell

Boring second round with both guys just dancing around, keeping their distance and not landing much of anything. Schnell was the only one able to land any kind of combinations so I gave him this round. On a late night/early morning, these guys are doing their damnedest to put me to sleep. 10-9 Schnell, 20-18 overall

Schnell got an early takedown but Inoue was right up. He went for one of his own and they ended up in a cage clinch with Inoue in control. He managed to land a lot in the clinch and when they separated, he was starting to connect a lot more with his strikes and managed to do some damage. He had a big advantage in strikes landed in the third and clearly took the round. First two were close so it could go either way. 10-9 Inoue but 29-28 Schnell overall

Official result - Matt Schnell (12-4) by split decision (29-28 x 2; 28-29)

> Viviane Pereira (13-1, 2-1 UFC) vs. Yan Xioanan (8-1 1 NC, 1-0 UFC)
Women's Strawweights

Really close round. Both ladies would throw their strikes in bunches and mostly at the same time and it was hard to tell what was landing and what was missing. The most obvious strikes that landed seemed to come from Yan but Pereira is really powerful so she did hurt Yan when she landed. Yan was starting to connect with her jab from distance late in the round and I thought she squeaked it out. 10-9 Yan 

Yan had a big second round as she started to connect alot with leg kicks. That slowed down Pereira and enabled her to score more as well. She was also still landing her jabs. Pereira did get through a couple of times with nice punch combos but not enough to overcome the leg strikes. She had over 30 landed by the end of the 2nd. 10-9 Yan, 20-18 overall

Pereira was much more aggressive in Round 3 and was definitely landing more punches in another round completely on the feet. Yan still was landing leg kicks. The first half of the round, both ladies missed 90% of their strikes but Pereira started to take control late, particiularly in the last minute. 10-9 Pereira, 29-28 Yan overall

Official result - Yan Xioanan (9-1-1) by unanimous decision (29-28; 30-27)

The right person won but there is absolutely no way Yan won the third round. 

> Shinsho Anzai (10-2, 2-1 UFC) vs. Jake Matthews (12-3, 6-3 UFC)

Great performance from Matthews, who has looked awesome since moving to 170. Anzai went for a takedown early but ate a knee to the head. Matthews landed more knees from a cage clinch and eventually separated. He clinched up in the centre and landed even more knees and then got a takedown. He did some ground and pound, took the back and secured a rear naked choke. Anzai went out with tapping

Official result - Jake Matthews (13-3) by submission (rear naked choke) at 2:44

He called out "Whoever Sean Shelby wants" after the fight. 

> Song Kenan (13-4, 1-0 UFC) vs. Hector Aldana (4-0, 0-0 UFC)

Aldana was far more aggressive and landed the majority of the strikes in round 1. But when Song hit, he hit hard and opened up a big cut under Aldana's eye early that was bleeding for the whole round. Aldana landed a couple of takedowns but couldn't hold Song down. 10-9 Aldana but Song seemed to be just waiting to land a KO blow the whole round. 

Song started out strong with a nice punch combo with really hard body kicks landing before and after it. Aldana took over after that, landing a lot of leg kicks and more punches than Song. He seemed on his way to winning another round when Song nailed him with a right that dropped him and Song moved in and finished him with strikes on the ground with 15 seconds left.

Official result - Song Kenan (14-4) by TKO (punches) at 4:45 of the 2nd round

That was his second straight knockout win to begin his UFC career and could be an important part of more UFC shows in China going forward. 

> Rolando Dy (9-6 1 NC, 1-2 UFC) vs. Shane Young (10-4, 0-1 UFC)

Great first round. Both guys landed a ton of shots and had each other in trouble at different points. Young looked to be the closest to actually finishing it with a great punch combo halfway through the round but Dy didn't go down and came back firiing. Young got a takedown right after that but Dy was right up. Dy closed strong but Young did more damage and landed more and should take the round. 10-9 Young

Another good round and if this doesn't win Fight of the Night, we're in for something really good coming up. Young was landing all kinds of combos but Dy was taking them and llanding some of his own. Young stopped Dy in his tracks with a hard elbow to the head and then just laid into him with punches and ellbows standing until Dy went down and the ref quickly stopped it. 

Official result - Shane Young (11-4) by TKO (punches) at 4:40 of Round 2

> Felipe Arantes (18-9-1 2 NC, 5-5-1 UFC) vs. Song Yadong (11-4 1 NC, 1-0 UFC)

Song looked great in round 1 and seemed to confuse the hell out of Arantes. He was landing all kinds of different punch combos and mixing in leg kicks at timely moments. He caught a kick midway through the round and threw Arantes down. He landed hammer fists before going into half guard and dropping elbows and punches that really hurt Arantes. Arantes worked him into half guard but stayed onhis back the rest of the round. Easy 10-9 Song, borderline 10-8

Song got a takedown and was all over Arantes the entire round. He did a lot of damage with ground and pound and was constantly working for submission and advancing position. He worked his way into side control a couple of times and got real close with an arm triangle at one point. Arantes got to his feet with a minute left and went for a takedown but they ended up in a clinch. Song took control and with about 5 seconds left, he kind of backed off and then landed a vicious elbow to the head dropped Arantes and he was out cold.

Official result - Song Yadong (12-4) by KO (elbow) at 4:59 of round 2. 

> Teruto Ishihara (10-5-2, 3-3-1 UFC) vs. Petr Yan (8-1, 0-0 UFC)

Slow start from Yan as he stalked Ishihara around the Octagon, trying to figure out his timing. Ishihara got a takedown but Yan was right up. Ishihara was throwing strikes from distance and occasionally landing. Yan found his timing finally and landed a combo that rocked Ishihara but he stayed up. He was clearly in trouble and went for a takedown but Yan stuffed it and then landed a brutal punch and Ishihara went down hard and the ref stepped in immediately. 

Official result - Petr Yan (9-1) by KO (punches) at 3:28


> Li Jingliang (14-5, 6-3 UFC) vs. Daichi Abe (6-1, 1-1 UFC)

Exclusively kickboxing in the first round. Li was landing more often and harder and by the end of the round Abe was bleeding from the nose. Abe may have actually landed the hardest punch, a counter that stunned Li but he landed far more hader shots and defiitely did more damage. 10-9 Li

Similar round although not as even as the first as Li rocked Abe several times. Abe never went down at all and still did land occasional shots but not nearly as many as in the first. Li built up a huge advantage in leg licks landed by the end of the round asll. 10-9 Li, 20-18 overall

Third round was dominant for Li as well but he did slow down a bit from the second. There were a few times when Abe got rocked but he never went down and he was landing his fair shair of shots. Easy 10-9 for Li

Official result - Li Jingliang (15-5) by unanimous decision (30-27 x 2; 30-26)

> Jessica-Rose Clark (#9, 9-4 1 NC, 2-0 UFC) vs. Jessica Eye (#10, 12-6 1 NC, 2-5 1 NC UFC)
Women's Flyweights

Eye was very aggressive, was far more active and landed more shots than Clark. In a round that was exclusively on the feet, it was clearly Eyes. Clark did land some nice counters but Eye was consistent enough for the whole round to easily take it. 10-9 Eye

Very close 2nd round. Both ladies slowed down again but the round was almost exclusively punches on the feet. Both were throwing less kicks. Clark did seem to get off more combinations and was landing effective counters as well. She was also showing more damage but much of that was from the first. 10-9 Clark, 19-19 overall

Early in the round, Eye was starting to take over on the feet, landing a lot and not really taking much damage. She landed a takedown with less than 2 minutes left and managed to hold her down for the rest of the fight. She was constantly working for submissions and landing elbows and punches until the round ended. 10-9 Eye, 29-28 overall

Official result - Jessica Eye (13-6) by unanimous decision (30-27; 29-28 x 2)

Eye cut an emotional promo where she said over and over again that she is finally at her right weight and she's the best and that she'll fight anyone. 

> Ovince Saint Preux (#7, 22-11, 10-6 UFC) vs. Tyson Pedro (#13, 7-1, 3-1 UFC)
Light Heavyweights

Pedro rocked OSP with a crescent kick and followed up with a hard punch and OSP went down briefly. On the way up, Pedro grabbed a front guillotine but OSP escaped. Pedro was working hard for a takedown and looked to get it but OSP basically fell on top of him OSP landed shots to the body and moved into half guard. From there he was also to secure an armbar and Pedro very quickly tapped. 

Official result - Ovince Saint Preux (23-11) by submission (armbar) at 2:54

> Donald Cerrone (#11, 32-10 1 NC, 20-7 UFC) vs. Leon Edwards (#13, 15-3, 7-2 UFC)

Both were throwing kicks early. Edwards went for a takedown and they ended up in a clinch. Edwards landed hard punches and a kick to the head and Cerrone was cut around his right eye and bleeding heavily. Standup was fairly even although Edwards seemed to be landing the harder shots and was definitely controlling the pace. 10-9 Edwards

Very close second round. Both guys landed kicks and punches but not a lot of sustained offence and very few combos. Cerrone landed a nice head kick after grabbing the glove, which the ref completely missed. He also nailed Edwards with a low blow and got a warning for it. 10-9 Cerrone, 19-19 overall

Round 3 was really good for Cerrone. He landed a few really nice punch combos early. The last half of the round was very even with neither guy doing much. Edwards stuffed a bunch of takedown attempts by Cerrone but wasn't doing a ton of stuff offensively. Edwards may be tiring a bit. 10-9 Cerrone, 29-28 overall

Another really close round, like #2. Scores could be just about anything. Both guys landed some nice combos. Cerrone briefly got a takedown but couldn't hold him down and didn't do any damage. From a clinch, Edwards landed punches that busted open Cerrone again and he was bleeding heavily by the end of the round. Cerrone not the least bit tired. 10-9 Edwards, 38-38 overall

On the feet, both men mostly just threw leg kicks with the odd punch thrown in. Cerrone was still going for takedowns and finally got one. He held Edwards down for a bit but didn't do any damage. After getting up, they continued to just land leg kicks. Total strikes for the whole fight were 119-89 for Edwards. They did have a nice punch exchange at the end of the fight. 10-9 Cerrone, 48-47 overall

Official result - Leon Edwards (16-3) by unanimous decision (48-47 x 3)

After the fight, Cerrone said he loves his job and he isn't going anywhere. Edwards asked for a fight with Jorge Masvidal in Birmingham in his post-fight promo.
