The UFC confirmed July 3 that former UFC welterweight champion No.3 Robbie Lawler (27-11-0, 1NC) and No. 7 Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (32-8-0, 1NC) will lock horns later this month at UFC 214.

MMA Crossfire Vault – UFC 214 news

An injury sustained by Cerrone was the primary reason for the change.

Both Lawler and Cerrone are trying to return to the win column. Lawler, 35, lost the belt to Tyron Woodley at UFC 201 last July, while Cerrone, 34, suffered an upset TKO loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC on FOX 23 in January.

Both fighters are admired by fans for their exciting, aggressive styles and the fight is expected to be one of the contenders for “Fight of the Night.”

UFC 214 is scheduled to take place July 29 at the Honda Centre in Anaheim, California. In the main event, light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier faces former champion Jon Jones in a rematch.

Daniel Cormier (19-1-0) vs Jon Jones (22-1-0)
