The UFC will be headed to Pittsburgh on Sunday where Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (28-7) will clash with fellow cowboy Alex Oliveira (14-2-1). Both fighters fight at both 155 and at 170. Here is a breakdown of the two fighters.
Donald Cerrone: Cerrone will be making his Welterweight debut and making a quick turnaround after his December title loss against Lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos. Before his title fight loss, Cowboy was on an eight-fight win streak. The Colorado native has notable wins over Eddie Alvarez and Edson Barboza. Cerrone has had eight fights in the last two years.
Alex Oliveira: Oliveira is riding a three fight win streak right now with his recent win in November against Piotr Hallmann in a lighweight bout. He won that fight by first-round KO and won a “Performance of the Night” bonus. Cowboy is 2-0 at Welterweight
