Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone will replace Sam Stout to face Dennis Silver for UFC 137

Sam Stout was forced out of his upcoming bout against Dennis Silver for UFC 137– which will take place in Las Vegas. Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone stepped in to replace him. The new match was confirmed by sources that was close to the match-up on Monday.

Donald Cerrone might soon give the Miller brothers a run for their money for a fighter who steps in on short notice when someone is injured. The said fight will be the second out of Cowboy’s last three fights, wherein he has stepped in for another injured fighter. Since moving over from WEC to the UFC, Donald Cerrone has gone 3-0 with rapidly improving his skills every step of the way.

During his recent trip in the Octagon, Cowboy made a short work of his opponent — Charles Oliveira. The latter was defeated during the first round of their UFC on Versus 5 bout in Milwaukee.

The Team Jackson fighter will now face a top ten opponent in Dennis Siver, who looks to win his fifth fight in a row this October.

Chris Lytle, Dan Hardy and Donald Cerrone were able to get a bonus of $65,000 after their fights at UFC on Versus 5.

UFC on Versus 5, which took place in Milwaukee last Sunday night, is filled with finishes and exciting bouts that left UFC officials with some difficulty on choosing the post-fight awards and bonuses.

After the astonishing bout between Dan Hardy and Chris Lytle, it was almost easy to think that the two would be the Fight of the Night. Chris Lytle had difficulty in facing his opponent, but he was still able to manage to end the fight with a submission — earning him the Submission of the Night. He had earned $65,000 each for his two awards, and earned a 2012 Softail Blackline motorcycle from Harley Davidson for his victory. On the other hand, Dan Hardy scored a $65,000 bonus for his part in the fight and a promise from the UFC co-owner and CEO – Lorenzo Fertitta- that he will not be released from the contract despite his fourth consecutive loss.

Meanwhile, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone obtained the Knockout of Night bonus, which earned him $65,000, after knocking out Charles Oliveira through a hook punch and a knee.
