The UFC has announced that Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone will now throw down with Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 83. Guess Jon Anik won’t be using nicknames while calling the February 21st headliner huh?
The news comes not long after it was announced that Tim Means has been removed from the event, due to a potential anti-doping violation.
Olveira (13-3-1) will be looking to build on his three fight winning streak, which includes a KO win over Piotr Hallmann in his last outing.
Cerrone (28-7) is trying to get back
on the horse in the win column, after being stopped by lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos. Cerrone had won eight in a row prior to UFC on FOX 17.
UFC FN 83 will go down at the Consol Engery Center in Pittsburgh.
