Donald Cerrone gives update on being forced out of Robbie Lawler fight

Donald Cerrone

UFC veteran Donald Cerrone was gearing up for his highly anticipated showdown with Robbie Lawler at UFC 213, however news surfaced this week revealing that Cerrone had been forced out of the fight due to a minor injury. The UFC revealed their plan to keep the fight intact, and postpone it until Cerrone is healthy, however while details on the injury were initially scarce, Cerrone has since taken to social media to clarify the situation.

This is of course the second time that the Lawler vs. Cerrone fight has been postponed. While the scrap was initially targeted for UFC 205 at the end of 2016, Lawler wanted more time off to recover from his 1st round KO loss to Tyron Woodley, which saw him lose the welterweight title.

With Cerrone uninjured, the UFC could very well move the bout to UFC 214, which is set to take place on July 29th in Anaheim.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
