Unlike Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, it appears we will get the much-talked-about lightweight scrap between Donald Cerrone and Khabib Nurmagomedov this year.
The two were set to square off in 2014, but a knee injury forced Nurmagomedov to the sidelines.
Cerrone has continued to pile up wins, and recently posted on Twitter that he had already signed his next fight. He failed to disclose who it was against, but the unbeaten Nurmagomedov also took to social media to reveal he has signed on the dotted line.

No official announcement has been made by the UFC regarding the fight, but it is expected to take place as early as May.
