Although that fight was scrapped a bigger fight might have been scheduled at UFC 206 in Toronto, Canada. Cerrone (31-7-1NC) will come up against UFC veteran Matt ‘The Immortal’ Brown (20-15), according to FOXSports.com’s Damon Martin, Cerrone and Brown have verbally agreed to the bout at UFC 206 next month. A bout agreement has yet to be finalized or announced by UFC officials.
Cerrone has been on a tear since moving up to welterweight after an unsuccessful bid to seize the lightweight title last year, he’s on a 3 win streak beating Alex ‘cowboy’ Oliveira by submission then picking up a KO over Patrick Cote and a TKO victory over Rick Story at UFC 202.
It’s a different story for Brown as he is in a must-win situation after losing 4 of his last 5 fights on which he is on a two-fight losing streak, once considered as a title contender in the 170-pound division Brown finds himself desperately needing a win after most recently being stopped by Jake Ellenberger back in July.
Brown was scheduled to face Tarec Saffedine at UFC 206 but it seems the UFC will find another opponent for Saffedine.
