Cedric Doumbe Puts On the Performance of a Lifetime, Usurping Nieky Holzken

GLORY/UFC.TV GLORY/UFC.TV

After years on top of the Welterweight division, the king, Nieky Holzken, has been dethroned. His loss came by the hands of the man who has quietly ascended the rankings over the past few years without much hype or fanfare in Cedric Doumbe. Doumbe has been looking incredible in all of his recent fights and going into this fight it was hard to discount him.

What ensued was a masterful performance, the exact fight that had to happen against the once-dominant Nieky Holzken by mixing up his strikes, controlling the ring and sneaking in his dangerous uppercuts after landing serious low kicks. Doumbe found a formula to keep Holzken from hitting his groove and carried it through to a resounding victory.
