Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone vs. Justin Gaethje is in the works to main event UFC Vancouver on September 14.

Cerrone (36-12-1NC) is coming off of a TKO loss via doctor stoppage to Tony Ferguson at UFC 238 last month. “Cowboy” was riding a three-fight win streak with victories over Mike Perry, Alexander Hernandez, and Al Iaquinta prior to loss to Ferguson.

Gaethje (20-2) is coming off of back-to-back wins over James Vick and Edson Barboza, most recently defeating Barboza by first round knockout in March. He’s earned Performance/Fight of the Night honors in all five of his Octagon appearances since jumping to the UFC from WSOF (now PFL) in 2017.
