MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee's very own Anthony Pettis finished his UFC fight Saturday night with his fist in the air after beating Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone.

CBS Sports reports that Pettis and Cerrone last faced off in 2013 when, again, Pettis came out on top. However, this time the match lasted a bit longer.

Back in 2013, Pettis won the match in the first round thanks to a technical knockout. But this time, the two fought through all three rounds with the final score from the judges being 29-28, Pettis coming out on top once again.

This wasn't a wild fight, though. The two took part in a tactical fight while remaining mostly on their feet for all three rounds.

This is only Pettis' fifth UFC win since 2015, leaving Cerrone on a 4-fight losing streak.
