Donald Cerrone vs Justin Gaethje Prediction & Betting Odds - UFC Fight Night Picks
September 13, 2019
Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone (36-12-0) returns to UFC lightway action on Saturday night (Sep 14) following a doctor stoppage loss to Tony Ferguson back in early June.
It seems like a short turn around for the Cowboy for this UFC Fight Night 158 event Vancouver, given how violent that fight was, but there’s nobody tougher in the UFC.
The Rogers Arena will host this exciting main event card in Canada where Justin Gaethje (20-2-0) will look to continue his winning streak, having beaten notable names Edson Barboza and James Vick in his last two fights.
Justin Gaethje has a six year age advantage over Cerrone and has only lost two of his 22 pro MMA fights to date. He’s on the cusp of a career elevating victory and a win over Cerrone would be another notable scalp.
Gaethje is currently No. 4 on the Lightweight rankings and a big win here would put him firmly in the conversation for a title shot. But can he beat Cerrone, the perpetual gatekeeper of the division? This one looks set to be a classic encounter.
