Lightweight John Makdessi has suffered an injury that will force him out of his planned date at UFC on Versus 5 on Aug. 14 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Never fear, "Cowboy" is here.
Cerrone's (15-3) been riding dirty through the UFC lightweight division since making the jump from the now defunct WEC promotion earlier this year.
If he can do it, it would give him five in a row. Time to make him a contender?
Standing in his way is the "Relentless" Paul Taylor (11-6-1), who is coming off a highlight reel knockout.
The hard-hitting Brit dimmed the lights for Gabe Reudiger with a punishing head kick back at UFC 126: "Silva vs. Belfort" earlier this year.
The win over "Godzilla" snapped Taylor's two fight losing streak and gave him an even 1-1 record in his new digs at 155-pounds.
In addition, surging lightweight contenders Jim Miller and Ben Henderson will square off in a bout that may very well go a long way in determining the next number one contender to the 155-pound title.
