Cerrone, a lightweight for the vast majority of his career, recently moved up to 170lbs and has looked incredible, notching three straight wins, all finishes.
Lawler was last seen in August, where he lost the title to Tyron Woodley, but before that was on a streak of five victories, including two fight of the year candidates against Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit.
UFC 205 is the promotions inaugural show in New York, and will be held at Madison square garden. It’s speculated to be a heavily stacked card, and you can expect more fights to be announced over the coming weeks.
