Donald Cerrone defeated Alex Oliveira in Pittsburgh last night on his UFC welterweight debut.
It took Cerrone just over two and a half minutes of the fight to submit his Brazilian opponent via triangle choke.
Actually, the fight should have been stopped a fraction earlier. Oliveira tapped out several times before referee Mario Yamasaki stepped in to call a halt to the bout.
The ref's leisurely reactions certainly angered Dana White.
10 taps before Yamasaki stops it after @Cowboycerrone tells him!!! And he was looking right at it......WOW!!!!! ????????

It actually got to the ridiculous point where Cerrone was pointing out to Yamasaki that his opponent was tapping out.
You have to wonder what Yamasaki was actually looking at white Oliveira was gesturing to stop the fight.
Watch the finish below.
