    Donald Cerrone earlier teased that he has been booked for a match up that fans should not miss.

    Cowboy took to Instagram to say “Just got off the phone with my ole Buddy. And at 155 it’s kinda are only option. He told me Cowboy let’s go make this money. And if I can Promise y’all something this is a fight y’all Do Not Want to miss. O and of course it’s on short notice ”

    It looks like Cowboy wasn’t kidding at all, as he is currently booked to face a fellow fan favorite and top bonus hunter. As Dana White just revealed to Yahoo! Sports, Cerrone will be facing Justin Gaethje on September 14. The lightweight contest will serve as the five round main event for UFC Vancouver.

    Poor Donald. This is a bad fight for him so soon after the Tony mauling.

    It'll be fun as hell to watch though.

    As if either one of them needed more brain damage. Fans are the real winners in this fight

    Smart booking by the UFC. It's not like Cowboy has no chance but Gaethje should win it and it will give him some more shine. Cowboy is still on the way out. He had some good performances to arrest his slide but they were against a mediocre fighter (Perrry) and two guys he had a big size advantage on (Hernandez and Iaquinta).

    Hopefully Gaethje wins, and if they fuck Ferguson and we get stuck with Conor-Khabib 2, then we get Gaethje vs Ferguson instead.

    Not too many matchups out there that are more exciting than this one.

    This is the fight I've been waiting for. Hard for me to imagine how Gaethje wins unless Cowboy psychs himself out.

    Gaethje will kill him
    Don “don’t like no pressure” and gaethje will be on him from “let’s get it on”

    Donald is insane for taking this fight. he knows what Justin will do; walk forward to cause damage with a willingness to die. I think cerrone would prefer it if he were less of a psychopath. but he isn't. gaethjdie wins early in R3.

    Fucking great fight, even though I don't want either to lose.

    Really hard to call too, Cerrone could Matt Brown him but more than likely its a blood bath with Justin taking over in the later rounds.

    I totally agree but when you ride bulls,cave and sky dive and ride everything that goes fkn fast isn't worried about a human being honestly.. he loves those fast fat checks and guaranteed another bonus if some sort

    Mostly right, but Cowboy won’t make it to round 3.

    Lots of confident picks up in here. For me it’s a coin flip. Cerrone has better technique, Justin has better pressure and higher output. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see Donald try to bring this to the ground and look for a sub in the scramble.

    The difference for me (as much as I hate to admit it) is that I truly believe Cowboy looked for a way out against Tony and was happy the doc stopped it, whereas I think Justin would gladly die in there. This will be a war of attrition and I give Gaethje the edge in heart.

    cave diving in under water caves is what I'm referring to.

    Just fought this fight on PS4. It was a war, but Cowboy got the TKO.
