Lawler (27-11 MMA, 12-5 UFC) and Cerrone (32-7 MMA, 19-4 UFC) are officially booked to square off at UFC 213. This fight was originally booked for UFC 205, but Lawler had to pull out for unspecified reasons. The collapse of the highly anticipated fight led fans to question Lawler’s will to fight after losing his title to Tyron Woodley by way of first round KO.
Cerrone also looks to bounce back after losing to Jorge Masvidal by a second round TKO stoppage at UFC on FOX 23. Previous to his loss, Cerrone was on a four fight tear since moving up to Welterweight. He appeared to have a one way ticket to a title shot until Masvidal violently derailed the Cowboy’s hype train. With both fighters looking to bounce back into the win column, the stakes are higher than ever for both men to get their careers back on track.
