UFC: Joe Lauzon withdraws from fight with Donald Cerrone

Saturday night’s UFC lightweight fight between Donald Cerrone and Joe Lauzon has been canceled again.

The promotion said Lauzon had to withdraw from the co-main event in Austin, Texas, with a medical issue.

Later Saturday, Lauzon offered more information on the issue on his Instagram channel.

“The reason I didn’t go to weigh-ins wasn’t because of cramps, but I literally can’t put any weight on my left knee,” Lauzon said. “Literally, I can’t even stand. I can’t fight.”

The 155-pound bout was originally slated for UFC 274 on May 7 in Phoenix, but that time Cerrone fell in and had to cancel.

Cerrone, 39, has lost six straight fights since his last win in May 2019.

Lauzon, 38, has not fought since a TKO victory against Jonathan Pearce in October 2019.
