Cerrone vs Nurmagomedov Will Likely Be At 170 lbs
According to Ariel Helwani on Twitter, Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Donald Cerrone is very close to finalized at 170 lbs for April, 16th. Nothing is known yet if this will be the main or co-main event if this bout takes place, but it is and exciting set of fighters that would face each other.
This is common Cerrone-like behavior to fight on short notice. Cerrone was currently scheduled to fight Patrick Cote on June 18th, but knowing Cerrone, he would of course like to fight both fighters in that short time span if possible.
It was unfortunate that Tony Ferguson got injured, but this bout has the potential to be more exciting even and hopefully this bout gets finalized soon.
Not done yet, but sources are saying this AM that Cerrone is atop the leaderboard to fight Nurmagomedov on 4/16 in TB. Fight would be @ 170.
