The hot rumor for the past couple weeks has been that the UFC is working to put Donald “Cowboy” Corrine in the Octagon with Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 187 on Memorial Day weekend.

For his part, Cerrone said on Saturday night that he had signed to fight.

“I signed a contract, yes,” he confirmed, although he wouldn’t say whom he would be fighting and didn’t know if his opponent had signed his bout agreement yet.

When asked specifically if he had signed to face Nurmagomedov, Cerrone was elusive.

Donald Cerrone“I don’t know who it might be, but there aren’t a whole lot of other guys at the top of the ladder left,” he said, before admitting that he would “absolutely” like to fight his Russian counterpart.

“Fighting Khabib would be a No. 1 contender (fight),” he said. And at this point in his career, Cerrone wants to make a run at the belt, hopefully bringing a title fight to Denver on the UFC’s next trip tot he Mile High City.

“(Denver) is a fight I’d hold out for,” said Cerrone, who will fight just about anyone, at any time, and anywhere.

First, however, we’re awaiting confirmation that the fight with Nurmagomedov is official.

        Well you responded to my comment … I guess that makes you one step lower than me. I suppose when you dropped out of high school you had all kinds of internet sites to troll with your slack jaw commentary. Yourself < is one word, keyboard failure. I know it doesn't matter to you though out there in the backwoods of Kentucky. Go wrestle some pigs you melon farmer.

    I’ll take Khabib. I like Cowboy, but he always seems to “shit the bed” as he put it in title contender fights.

      Will be interesting to see if cerrone can nullify khabib’s top game with his jiu jitsu. If not he’ll be in for a long night. We’ll see how the layoff and coming back from injury will affect khabib.
