Watch UFC Cerrone vs Gaethje live in Australia: ESPN Fight Night 158
Here's your TV guide to watch Donald Cerrone fight Justin Gaethje live in the main event of ESPN UFC Fight Night 158 on 15 September.
MMA fans have been blessed with a huge UFC fight calendar so far this year, and that will continue this Sunday with UFC Fight Night 158. Headlining the card is a juicy lightweight bout between fan favourite Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and Justin "The Highlight" Gaethje.
The contest will likely have huge ramifications in the lightweight division. Sunday could very well be Cerrone's last fight. He's at the tail end of his career and has taken a lot of damage over the years. The last time he was in the octagon doctors had to stop the fight after he accumulated a gruesome eye injury.
Meanwhile for Gaethje, he's coming off back-to-back successes, which has propelled him to number four in the UFC rankings. A victory would have to put Dana White under some pressure to offer him a title shot against champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Both fighters are renowned powerful strikers, so expect to see a heavy-hitting clash in Cerrone vs Gaethje.
Elsewhere on a packed Main Card, light heavyweights Glover Teixeira and Nikita Krylov will go toe to toe. Both are noted finishers and astonishingly Krylov has never had a brawl go the distance. While Teixeira is tied with champion Jon Jones for the most stoppages and submission finishes in the history of the division. Teixeira vs Krylov is a co-headliner.
