Rob McCullough vs Donald Cerrone WEC fight in the works

Rob McCullough vs Donald Cerrone
Former WEC lightweight champion "Razor" Rob McCullough will likely take on the undefeated Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone (8-0) in a bout that will possibly determine the next 155-pound number one contender.

News of the match up surfaced at a recent Ring of Fire event in Denver, Colo.

MMAmania.com was unable to confirm the actual date and location of the showdown at this time; however, with three title fights slated for WEC 35 on August 3 it's possible that this bout will be tacked on to the WEC 36 card that features the middleweight rematch between 185-pound champion Paulo Filho and Chael Sonnen.

McCullough most recently won a lackluster split-decision victory over Kenneth Alexander at WEC 34: "Faber vs. Pulver" earlier this month. It was his first fight since losing his title to Jamie Varner via technical knockout at WEC 32 back in February.

Cerrone returned from an eight-month suspension (diuretic) to submit Danny Castillo with a fancy first round armbar at WEC 34. The Ring of Fire veteran defeated Kenneth Alexander via submission (triangle choke) in his WEC debut back in November 2007.

However, it was later ruled a "no contest" because of the positive test for the banned substance.

The fight between "Razor" and Cerrone has all the makings to be a barnburner -- both fighters are accustomed to finishing fights ... albeit in much different fashions recent;y. McCullough is a Muay Thai specialist and Cerrone is a submission machine who also happens to know a thing or two about striking (he's a S-1 Muay Thai United States Champion).

Regardless, whoever comes out on top will likely punch his ticket to challenge the winner of the championship bout between reigning division boss Varner and Marcus Hicks next month at WEC 35.
