Donald Cerrone will remain at welterweight for his next fight, taking on Canada’s own Patrick Cote at UFC Fight Night 89.
Set for June 18 from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, the bout is added to another 170-pound affair between Rory MacDonald and Stephen Thompson. The main card airs live on FOX Sports 1.
Cerrone (29-7) bumped up from lightweight earlier this year to face Tim Means, but Means was knocked out of the bout. “Cowboy” went on to defeat Alex Oliveira, improving to 16-4 over his UFC career.
Cote (23-9), a one-time title contender like Cerrone, has been on a strong run since moving down from middleweight. He is 6-1 over his last seven and has won each of his past three.
