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.
