UFC Austin is down a fight, as Cowboy Cerrone vs. Joe Lauzon gets another day-of cancelation.

Once again, on the day the fight is supposed to go down, we won’t be seeing Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone vs. Joe Lauzon.

Per Ariel Helwani, tonight’s UFC Austin co-main event between the two Octagon legends has been canceled due to health issues for Lauzon.

“So I’m not fighting Cowboy Cerrone tonight. The freakiest weirdest thing ever: I weigh-in officially, I got sit down, and I got to put my socks on, I turn my knee out, and my knee locks out,” he said in a video posted to his Instagram. “I’ve dealt with meniscus injuries on both knees, but this knee in particular, had it cleaned out a bunch of times, but when it does lock up, I can usually straighten out, it unlocks, totally fine, 100 percent, immediately. This time, I’m now surrounded by all the fighters, commission, Cowboy’s in the room, I’m trying not to make a scene and let people know there’s not a problem with my knee. Eventually, I end up hopping on one of my cornerman’s back, acted like I was choking him like we were joking, but I couldn’t stand. I couldn’t walk at all.”

Cowboy Cerrone vs. Joe Lauzon scrapped from UFC Austin due to health issues for Lauzon

Lauzon did not appear at the ceremonial weigh-in faceoffs yesterday due to the injury.

The pair had been scheduled to meet at UFC 274 in May, but the fight was scrapped on the day of the event due to a non-COVID19 illness Cerrone came down with.

Originally, the two had been pegged to face off at UFC London the week prior but had been moved to UFC 274 for unknown reasons.

UFC Austin: Calvin Kattar vs. Josh Emmett takes place on Saturday, June 18, 2022, live from the Moody Center in Austin, TX. Follow along with FanSided MMA for all your news and highlights.
