Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone called out the entire welterweight division recently.

“Any and All 170 lb ers Please don’t respond to this just call @danawhite or joe Silva and say ” I will fight Cowboy January 28 in Denver ”

Jorge Masvidal bit.

And so it was to be. Ariel Helwani reports for MMA Fighting that it’s official. Cerrone and Masvidal will fight at UFC on Fox 23: Shevchenko vs. Pena on January 28, 2017, at Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

Cerrone is coming off a win over Matt Brown at UFC 206 on Saturday. Masvidal is coming off a win over Jake Ellenberger at the TUF 24 Finale earlier this month, but has been advocating for the fight for months.

Thus four fights are confirmed for the event, in addition to this one.

Valentina Shevchenko vs. Julianna Pena
Hector Lombard vs. Brad Tavares
ason Gonzalez vs. J.C. Cottrell

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
