Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone bout with Robbie Lawler moving to UFC 214

Robbie Lawler and Donald Cerrone

There is a very good reason for the excitement that surrounded the booking of Donald Cerrone vs. Robbie Lawler when it first came together past year. UFC fans were excited to see this match up with Cerrone rebooked. This time, however, it is Cerrone that is withdrawing from the fight.

MMA Fighting is reporting that Cerrone has suffered an undisclosed injury that prevents him from competing at the event. He may be able to make a quick return, though.

Lawler has not been seen in the cage in nearly a year, when he succumbed to a first-round punch dealt by former training partner Tyron Woodley, and surrendered the UFC welterweight title in the process. Lawler was also in the process of moving gyms, but now his affairs are in order and he is ready to step foot back in the Octagon after a year away. However, both believe they can still square off later that month at UFC 214 from Anaheim.

New York Knicks Expected to Fire Phil Jackson
The team was unable to make a trade, and NY selected French guard Frank Ntilikina with the eighth overall selection. ESPN reports NY and Jackson will announce they're parting ways Wednesday morning.

If you recall, the promotion attempted to book these fighters against each other at UFC 205 last November, but Lawler pulled out of the bout.

UFC 213, slated for July 8 in Las Vegas, features Amanda Nunes putting her bantamweight belt on the line against Valentina Shevchenko, as well as an interim middleweight title fight between top contenders Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker.

Donald Cerrone is coming back from a loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC on FOX 23, where he lost via TKO in the second round.
