Yes, UFC boss man Dana White has reportedly told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that Lawler and Cerrone are going to throw down at UFC 213, July 8th.
Lawler (27-11) is looking to get back on track, after he was KO’d by Tyron Woodley last July and lost the welterweight crown. “Ruthless” had won five in a row prior to the defeat.
Cerrone (32-8) was also taken out in his last performance, as Jorge Masvidal finished him in the second round this past January. “Cowboy” had won four in a row before taking the loss.
So, that’s a very solid addition to UFC 213 that a lot of folks are going to want to see. The July 8th card will be part of International Fight Week in Las Vegas.
