The welterweight showdown between former champion Robbie Lawler and Donald Cerrone that was supposed to take place this week, but the two have been rebooked for UFC 214 later this month.

The first date had to be postponed because of Cerrone’s blood infection. However, doctors estimated that three weeks will suffice to him to recover.

Cerrone is attempting to bounce back after losing to Jorge Masvidal in January at UFC on FOX 23. Before that, Cerrone had won four in a row since moving up to welterweight after getting TKO’d by then-lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in December 2015 at UFC on FOX 17.

Lawler has not fought since a devastating first-round knockout loss to Tyron Woodley at UFC 201, where he relinquished the welterweight belt. Before that, Lawler had been on a five-fight winning streak, including two title defenses after winning the belt from Johny Hendricks in December, 2014 at UFC 181.

Latest UFC 214 lineup now includes:

  • Champ Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones – for light heavyweight title
  • Cristiane Justino vs. Tony Evinger – for vacant women’s featherweight title
  • Champ Tyron Woodley vs. Demian Maia – for welterweight title
