DOES DONALD “COWBOY” CERRONE HAVE A CHANCE AGAINST ROBBIE LAWLER AT UFC 205?

 

New York Just Got a Lot More Dangerous…

After all this talk of McGregor vs Diaz 2 (3, 4, or however many times they milk their cash cow), finally there’s a fight for the fans, the real fans.

UFC President Dana White announced Wednesday on a Cleveland Radio show that “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler (27-11)  is set to fight Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (31-7) at UFC 205 in New York. This a fight fan’s wet dream as these are two of the most game fighters and both have a point to prove.

Lawler’s quick turnaround shows he wants to distance himself from his most recent loss to current champion Tyron Woodley, and with the latest finish of Rick Story in a second round TKO, “Cowboy” wants to show the welterweight division that he’s not here to take part, he’s here to take over. Now does “Cowboy” have a chance? Sure he does, with early finishes in his last two fights it’s clear that Cerrone’s power has transferred over to the heavier division. Coupled with his Muay Thai skills, impressive Jiu Jitsu, and lanky body type (which gave Lawler problems against Carlos Condit), there’s no reason he shouldn’t be in it to win it. However, “Cowboy” has shown the tendency to let his nerves get the best of him and not show up for big fights, and MSG is probably the biggest stage there is. Also, Robbie Lawler 3.0 has a gas tank now and is a much smarter fighter. He puts together different techniques seamlessly and has incorporated knees and elbows into his already vicious attack…oh, and did we mention he still has that devastating left hand?

Both fighters are strikers that will be looking to end it early but can go the distance. Lawler comes into the 5th round like a bat out of hell and the fact that he’s been on the big stage with 2 title defenses, it’s going to be a long night for the Budweiser swigging “Cowboy.”

Edge: Robbie Lawler

What do you fight fans think of the upcoming bout? Is Cowboy up to the challenge, or will Robbie Lawler show his latest outing was a fluke?

UFC 205 is set for Nov 12, 2016 at Madison Square Garden N.Y., N.Y.,
