Donald Cerrone vs Charles Oliveira moved to main card at UFC on Versus 5 on Aug. 14

Good news, fight fans, damn good news.

The upcoming lightweight clash pitting Donald Cerrone vs. Charles Oliveira has been moved up to the main card of UFC on Versus 5, which goes down Aug. 14 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The promotion announced as much just last night.

After the bout was put together, there was a bit of an uproar from fans who believed the match-up was compelling enough that its original placement, on the preliminary card, was unfair.

Well, apparently the UFC is somewhat like most retail outlets in that if you complain long enough and loud enough, you'll usually get your way.

So good job, disgruntled ones. Well played.
