Report: Donald Cerrone 'has a UFC fight,' suitors include Khabib Nurmagomedov and Michael Johnson

Looks like "Cowboy" is becoming the Michael Bisping of the lightweight division, at least when it comes to call outs.

Everybody wants some!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight Donald Cerrone is looking to get back into the Octagon as soon as possible, and while he couldn't convince the promotion to get him a short-notice bout in Baltimore, "Cowboy" insists he now "has a fight."

That's according to a report from UFC Tonight, which also states that UFC is "interested" in pairing him off against undefeated wrecking ball Khabib Nurmagomedov, while streaking 155-pound standout Michael Johnson recently threw his name into the hat.

Considering Cerrone (23-6-1) wants to fight six times in 2014, I don't see any reason why he can't fight them both.

Though I would have to imagine a win over the 22-0 "Eagle," who won his first six fights inside the Octagon and recently polished off top contender Rafael dos Anjos, would propel the wakeboarding fanatic into a title fight, or at the very least, an eliminator bout for a crack at the division crown.

Turning away "The Menace," a winner of three straight, would definitely be a feather in his cap, but may not slingshot him into the upper echelon of contenders.

Nothing is official at this time and plans often change as the promotion juggles its numerous fight cards, but those are two potential fights that promise fireworks, as well as "Fight Night" bonuses.
