The hardest working man in the mixed martial arts business, lightweight contender Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone, has his fourth fight of 2014 set, as he has verbally agreed to face off with fellow 155-pound standout Bobby "King" Green in the co-main event of UFC 178 in Las Vegas on September 27.

Green's original opponent for the MGM Grand Garden Arena card, Jorge Masvidal, will now face James Krause on the same card.

Pretty cool fight. Cerrone may just meet his goal of 6 fights this year.
I think coming off the Thomson win this was a better next step for Green. It should make for fireworks

Green's style might be a bit difficult for Cerrone to deal with but it's definitely a winnable fight for both guys. I'll be rooting for Cowboy!

Another Alvarez tease

This is a solid fight though and makes a lot of sense. Hopefully Cowboy can keep the streak going.

this is a great fight. green looked surprisingly good against Thomson. I think cowboy has a tough fight but I think he's got the style to beat green.

Masvidal deserved the bigger fight here. Don;t get why he's not getting one.
