If you hurt Cerrone you usually get finished.
I agree but you have to admit it was to a new level. My personal opinion is Cowboy did not get lucky. A finisher like him creates opportunities and had he not jumped on the choke Barboza could have recovered like against Castillo.
I also believe had Barboza had a gameplan to out point Cerrone vs decapitate Cerrone, he would have probably won a UD. But I would never fault a guy for being a finisher.
