Donald Cerrone really, really wanted to fight at the UFC’s upcoming card in Denver, and “Cowboy” has gotten his wish.
Following his KO win over Matt Brown at UFC 206, Cerrone called on any welterweight to step up and fight him, January 28th. Jorge Masvidal relayed on Twitter that he was more than willing, and on Wednesday, the promotion announced the fight.
Masvidal is coming off a first round, stoppage win over Jake Ellenberger earlier this month at the TUF 24 Finale.
In addition, the UFC has announced that rising heavyweight Francis Ngannou will take on former champ Andrei Arlovski at the event.
The upcoming, UFC on FOX 23 card will be hosted by Denver’s Pepsi Center.
