Donald Cerrone vs Matt Brown in the works for UFC 206
It looks like Toronto is going to greatly benefit from Kelvin Gastlem’s inability to make weight for his UFC 205 fight against Donald Cerrone, as FOX Sports is reporting that Cerrone will now face Matt Brown at UFC 206.
Earlier today, Kelvin Gastelum revealed that he was not even close to making the contracted weight of 170lbs for his welterweight fight vs Cerrone at the historic UFC 205 event at Madison Square Garden. MMA fans world-wide are furious that they won’t be able to see one of the most entertaining fighters in the UFC perform tomorrow.
As usual, Donald Cerrone was ready and willing to take on anyone at tomorrow nights event after Gastelum pulled out. However, it’s impossible to get another fight done in such a short period of time.
The fight between Cerrone and Brown has been verbally agreed too. Let’s hope nothing prevents it from officially being added to the UFC 206 card.
UFC 206 takes place on December 10th at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada.
