Cerrone Eyes Third 2014 Opponent, Khabib/Johnson Top Short List Of Options
We just don’t know who that is yet.
At the top of the list is of course, rising lightweight, Khabib Nurmagomedov. But also on the radar for the UFC’s most fan friendly lightweight is a possible clash against, Blackzilian, Michael Johnson.
UFC Tonight broke the story on FOX Sports 1:
â€śHeâ€™s looking for fight number three this year, and he said he has a fight but wouldnâ€™t tell me who it is against. What Iâ€™m hearing, the UFC is interested in Cowboy vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov. Nurmagomedovâ€™s team says they havenâ€™t been approached, but would take it if asked. Michael Johnson wants to fight Cowboy as well.â€ť
