Lightweight contender Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone has made no secret of his desire to fight six times in 2014. Well, on Wednesday, July 16, he will be halfway to his goal, as he has verbally agreed to face New Jersey's own Jim Miller in the five-round main event of the UFC Fight Night Card at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City.
Winner of three straight, Cerrone has been on a tear with his finishes of Evan Dunham, Adriano Martins, and Edson Barboza, each of which earned him a post-fight bonus. Whippany's Miller is unbeaten in his last four, as he's defeated Joe Lauzon, Fabricio Camoes, and Yancy Medeiros.
Also added to the fight card is a flyweight matchup between 125-pound banger John "Hands of Stone" Lineker and grappling specialist Alptekin Ozkilic.
