The Legend Donald Cerrone
With more than 60 combined fights inside the octagon between them, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Joe Lauzon are expected to face off at the upcoming UFC Fight Night card scheduled on April 30.
Multiple sources confirmed the news to MMA Fighting on Friday with verbal agreements in place from the athletes. MMA Junkie initially reported the news.
Cerrone will be making his first appearance in nearly a year as he looks to stop the roughest skid of his career after going 0-5 with one no contest in his past six fights. Prior to his current streak, Cerrone had rattled off three wins in a row including a submission victory over Mike Perry and a knockout against Alexander Hernandez.
Now Cerrone will look to return to the win column while facing another veteran from the lightweight division.
Lauzon last fought in October 2019 when he earned a first-round TKO over Jonathan Pearce, which put him back on track after three losses in a row.
It appears Cerrone was the perfect bait with Lauzon taking on another UFC legend when they meet on April 30.
More fights for the card will be announced by the UFC in the coming weeks along with a main event for the show.
