Ask and you shall receive, Donald Cerrone gets his December Fight

| October 30, 2011 | Reply

Donald Cerrone has stepped in for injured fighters in back to back fights, winning them both in impressive fashion. It seems as if he’s now being rewarded for those actions by getting what he requested following his first round submission of Dennis Siver at UFC 137.

After winning his sixth in a row, Joe Rogan asked “The Cowboy” what’s next during their post fight interview. Cerrone had only one request, to fight one more time this year in December.

Ask and you shall receive Mister Cerrone. is reporting that Cerrone (17-3) and Nate Diaz (14-7) have verbally agreed to meet at the UFC’s year-end show, UFC 141 on December 30th. Their fight will likely be part of the night’s pay-per-view main card which is scheduled to be headlined by the massive heavyweight clash between former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar versus the Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem.

[UPDATE] – The UFC confirmed the Diaz vs. Cerrone bout today and announced it will serve as the night’s Co-main event.

Cerrone earned himself a $75,000 “Submission of the Night” bonus for his rear naked choke submission of Silver, his third bonus in four fights in the UFC.

Diaz is coming off a first round submission victory of his own at UFC 135. After losing two in a row at welterweight, the Ultimate Fighter 5 winner moved back down to light weight and got back in the win column against Takanori Gomi.

How this fight goes is anyone guess, but when they step into the Octagon on December 30th you can guarantee it’s going to be one hell of a fight.
