A popular veteran with a long-established reputation for exciting scraps will tangle with a competitor fresh off one of 2017’s most exciting bouts.

A welterweight match between Donald Cerrone and Yancy Medeiros is all but official for the UFC Austin main event on Feb. 18, sources told MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani on Tuesday.

It's a great match up though...a few years ago it would have been Cowboy all day but now I really give Yancy a shot here.

I thought I remember Cerrone saying he was going back to 155 ? I'd say this one will still be at 170 seeing how successful Yancy has been lately at the weight

I thought he was moving back down to Lightweight, but I guess there are some fights you just can't pass up and I think this is a really good fight for Cowboy.....Yancy also used to fight at 55, isn't a huge 170 lber and also suffers from body shot KO's lol.

Yancy probably needs more time to recover from that last fight. I like cowboy here the same way I liked kelvin over gsp

Vick better get the winner at some point, and the semi-main on this show too would be nice.

He was asking for the Cerrone fight, even said he'll take it at 155 or 170. Then after this got booked, he got pissed. They should give him the co-main spot against a worthy opponent.

I think you'll end up being pleasantly surprised Jae. I think these two match up perfectly to produce an entertaining fight. It's definitely not what I was thinking for Cowboy but it's a nice alternative.

I love both guys. Big fan of the two. Sucks to see them fight as I don’t wanna root for one over the other. Cerrone is coming up on the end of his career. He still has some gas in the tank but it’s far past half-empty. Medeiros aa stated above has body-shot-vulnerability. Advantage goes to Cerrone but both scrap and love to bite down on the mouthpiece and swing. Great scrap. Hate to see a loser.

I think the fight will be great for the fans, but horrible for Cowboy who I am a fan of is all. I'd give Yancy the advantage in this fight.
