Dana White might have a new fight on his hands between Robbie Lawler and Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone. After Lawler's UFC 201 welterweight loss, he's been ready to get back in the ring as soon as possible.
Dana White says Robbie Lawler is calling him everyday trying to get a fight right now#UFCVancouver— Damon Martin (@DamonMartin) August 27, 2016
Lawler is definitely eager to hit the octagon again, and according to NBC Sports Radio, White is recognizing it:
I've got Robbie Lawler calling me everyday. That kid wants to get back in there so bad.
But it looks like 'Cowboy' Cerrone saw this and jumped at it immediately...
Cerrone knocked Rick Story out at UFC 202 and has been wanting to get another match date set quickly. Cerrone has also just inked an 8-fight contract and it looks like he wants to kick it off with a fight against Lawler.
White should definitely take this into consideration, as this would be a great match-up in the welterweight division. Let's see if Cerrone's Twitter game can help get him into the octagon and fist to fist with Lawler.
