Donald Cerrone isn’t waiting long to bounce back from a lightweight title loss. The famously active fighter will move to the welterweight division for the first time in his UFC career when he faces off with Tim Means in the headliner of a UFC Fight Night event in Pittsburgh on February 21st.
The UFC announced the news prior to the UFC 195 weigh-ins today.
Cerrone (28-7, 1 NC, 15-4 UFC) will compete for the 20th time in the promotion when he faces Means (25-7-1, 7-4 UFC). Coyboy walked into Orlando on an eight-fight winning streak trying to take the UFC lightweight belt from Rafael dos Anjos, but was dispatched in just 66 seconds by the champ.
Means is coming off a big knockout win over John Howard at UFC Fight Night 80. He’s 5-2 as a welterweight in the UFC.
Both men live and train in New Mexico, though at different camps.
The card will also feature a middleweight bout between Derek Brunson and Roan Carneiro, along with a bantamweight fight between Cody Garbrandt and John Lineker.
