Mac Danzig vs. Donald Cerrone grudge match slotted for UFC 131 in Vancouver

by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Mar 14, 2011 at 5:40 pm ET

Some good good ol' trash-talking has secured Mac Danzig (20-8-1 MMA, 4-4 UFC) a fight with fellow lightweight Donald Cerrone (14-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC) at UFC 131.

UFC officials today announced the June 11 bout, which came about after Danzig's recent Twitter insults.

"So all you have to do to secure a fight you haven't earned is wear a silly hate, call yourself 'Cowboy' and talk trash?" Danzig wrote in January after Cerrone earned a late-replacement booking with Paul Kelly.

UFC 131 is expected to take place June 11 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Brock Lesnar vs. Junior Dos Santos headlines the night's pay-per-view broadcast.

It's not clear if Danzig vs. Cerrone will make the PPV broadcast or if it may be aired or streamed as part of a preliminary-card special.

Since a career-worst three-fight skid, Danzig, "The Ultimate Fighter 6" winner, has won two of three fights. Most recently, he scored a first-round knockout of Joe Stevenson that earned him UFC 124's "KO of the Night" honors. The former KOTC champ's only loss during the stretch came in a controversial UFC 115 bout in which the ref appeared to stop the fight prematurely after believing Danzig had been choke unconscious.

Cerrone, a former top WEC lightweight contender, made his UFC debut in the Kelly fight and picked up a second-round submission victory (in a bout that earned UFC 126 "Fight of the Night" honors). He's now won three consecutive fights, including a decision victory over Jamie Varner and a submission win over Chris Horodecki under the WEC banner.

But if not him, who? Mac has to start chipping away these borderline top guys at some point!

Looking forward to this. I always feel nervous when I watch Mac fight!
was there a time we weren't at war; when we knew what our hearts and hands were for?

This is a really good fight for him. Someone at Zuffa must like him b/c pretty much anyone else that lost 4 of 5 (before Stevenson) would have been toast. Maybe they just like KO's :D . Cerrone is definitely better comp than Stevenson and a top LW. WAR DANZIG!

few things going danzigs way.

he won the ultimate fighter - and has a contract, so wouldnt be dropped as easy as someone on a rolling contract.

he brings it to the fights, emotional fighter, good interviews, interesting character, has a following

NAIL IT MAC!!!

He's got a long way to go before his promos are as good as Hulk Hogan, but I agree that these things are very important in sports entertainment.
