Longtime lightweight contender Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone will be back in the Octagon on
Sunday, February 21st in Pittsburgh. This time, he’ll be fighting as a welterweight when he
moves up and faces Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira in the five-round main event. Winner of eight
of his past nine bouts, with five of those victories coming by knockout or submission,
the all-action Cerrone will meet a like-minded foe in Brazil’s Oliveira, one of the breakout
stars of 2015 who won three of four bouts in his first year in UFC, most recently picking up
Performance of the Night honors for his November knockout of Piotr Hallmann.
