Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sport

That took all of 20 minutes.

Easy come, easy go.

Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov agreed to fight Donald Cerrone at the upcoming UFC 178: "Jones vs. Gustafsson 2" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place on Sept. 27, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

20 minutes later, he blew out his knee.

Mixed martial arts (MMA), she is a cruel mistress.

Cerrone, who is fresh off a UFC Fight Night 45 win over Jim Miller earlier this week in Atlantic City, New Jersey (watch it), is expected to remain on the "Sin City" card; however, it will not be in a rematch against Nate Diaz, a fight UFC President Dana White called "ridiculous."

Stay tuned.
