Are You Streaming UFC Fight Night 126? What Are Your Expected Knockdowns?
Donald Cerrone aka cowboy has planned to return the lightweight division but will still in the welterweight division with a fight with Medeiros at UFC Fight Night 126. Cerrone (32-10 MMA, 19-7 UFC) will be headlining the UFC event fifth time on February 18 at Frank Erwin Centre with the matchup against Medeiros (15-4 MMA, 6-4 UFC). When competing at 170 pounds cowboy kept him undefeated in the octagon, same is being expected in Texas soon.
Two men with a knowledge of the situation – both will enter with an aim to rebound from losses. Lewis, being the 12th in the current USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie in the MMA heavyweight rankings. His last fight was a loss but snapped a six-fight streak with Mark Hunt. While Tybura will be joining from a five-round unanimous decision loss to Werdum, headlining the UFC Fight Night 121, that snapped his three-fight winning streak. Tybura is still far-reach fighter for Lewis.
The 21-year-old Northcutt enter with alternated wins and losses right from his association with UFC since October 2015. He managed a record of 0-2 at welterweight. Whereas, Gouti (12-3) with his recent chopping block past September and three other successful appearances, enter in the octagon and has the edge to block Northcutt chopping in front of his hometown fans.
