Donald Cerrone Claims To Be Booked On UFC 219 Card


Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone is headlining this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night Gdansk card as he takes on unranked Darren Till.

Despite having a fight scheduled for this weekend, the welterweight contender says he already has his next appearance set for UFC 219.

“They (the UFC) can’t officially book me for two. It won’t work,” Cerrone said on The Luke Thomas Show. “It’s just on ice.”

Cerrone has yet to reveal whom he may be fighting at UFC 219 and the UFC has yet to issue any sort of statement on it either.

“Cowboy” originally stated quite a while back that he wanted to compete 50 times as a professional MMA fighter, but the MMA star recently upped that number.

“I said I wanted 50 fights total, but that’s right on my fingertips,” Cerrone said. “So I gotta broaden that to maybe 60. So 55 or 60; (I’ll) probably go with 60.”

UFC Fight Night Gdansk takes place on Saturday, October 21 from the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland with Donald Cerrone and Darren Till headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
