Donald Cerrone will make another walk to the Octagon tomorrow night (Sat., May 8, 2021) at UFC Vegas 26 live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, when he takes on Alex Morono in a makeshift co-main event.
Cerrone was originally expected to fight Diego Sanchez on the main card before “Nightmare” was pulled from the event and given his UFC walking papers. “Cowboy” will now fight Morono and try capture his first win since 2019. Remember, Cerrone is coming off a draw opposite Niko Price back in Sept. 2020 and had lost four-straight fights prior to that.
Ahead of Cerrone’s co-main event clash with Morono the promotion has put together all of “Cowboy’s” Octagon walkouts. There are quite a few considering Cerrone is entering his 37th UFC fight, but the montage is quick and pretty darn cool. Check it out above courtesy of UFC.
There’s been much speculation about Cerrone’s fighting future given his recent lack of success. UFC president Dana White has already hinted at possible retirement for “Cowboy,” but the veteran fighter isn’t done just that. That said, his bout with Morono this weekend at UFC Vegas 26 should be closely watched just in case “Cowboy” changes his mind and finally walks away from the sport of MMA.
