AUSTIN – Once again, the bout between Joe Lauzon and Donald Cerrone will not take place.

The lightweight bout initially scheduled to take place a month ago at UFC 274 has once again fallen apart just hours before the second attempt at making the fight happen at UFC on ESPN 37. The first booking was scrapped due to Cerrone becoming ill on fight day. This time, Lauzon’s left knee locked up on him after official weigh-ins on Friday.

MMA Junkie confirmed the news following an initial report from Ariel Helwani.

Lauzon also explained the situation on his fight week vlog.

“So, I’m not fighting Cowboy Cerrone tonight,” Lauzon said in a video posted to Instagram. “The freakiest, weirdest thing ever. I weigh in officially, everything’s fine, I go to sit down in the chairs where all the fighters are, and I go to put my socks on. … I turn my knee out, and my knee locks up.”

UFC on ESPN 37 which is headlined by a featherweight matchup between Calvin Kattar and Josh Emmett will proceed with 13 total fights. The event takes place at the Moody Center, with the main card airing on ESPN/ESPN+ following prelims on ESPN2/ESPN+.
