    It would be if Cerrone were just "someone"!

    Really we should also count every TUF fighter who won a fight as well. Those guys don't get enough credit for the effort it takes to make it though that gauntlet.

    Jury was a warm up , Bendo knows him well and is still a handful for any LW , Cerrone has some big brass ones

    Leben had like an 11 day turnaround or something crazy like that back when he fought Akiyama and someone else.

    Not sure if it was 2 cards in a row for either, but Leben fought twice in 2 weeks (won both) and Chas Skelly did it in even less than 2 weeks I believe, this past Summer.
