Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone has an experience of over 50 professional mixed martial arts fights; out of which 37 are in the UFC. He is one of the best UFC’s fighters of all times, with the most wins under the organization; and has recently appeared at Submission Underground (SUG) 19 – where he submitted Rafael Dos Anjos under EBI overtime rules.
Craig Jones, on the flipside, is one of the most beloved Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athletes of today. This won’t be his first time facing a UFC athlete either; as he’s already won matches against the likes of Davi Ramos, Gilbert Burns, and others.
Combat Jiu-Jitsu Worlds: The Featherweights event will also feature a 16-athlete tournament, with athletes such as Elias Anderson, Michael Wacker, Keith Krikorian, Zack Schneider, Cody Owens, Estevan Martinez… And many more to come!
