UFC Night Fight Main Card Sept, 2020. The co-main event for Saturday’s card welcomes Donald Cerrone back to the UFC octagon for his 52nd professional fight, where Niko Price will hope to hand him a fifth consecutive loss.
“Cowboy” has kept the level of competition high despite not seeing result go in his favor this last couple of years, and a return to welterweight hasn’t brought the change in current he was hoping for.
UFC Night Fight Predictions: Donald Cerrone vs. Niko Price
The odds relay that poor form as Cerrone heads into the clash as +130 underdog with Sugarhouse betting site in NJ, but we’re backing the 37-year-old to spring the upset with his first victory in more than a year.
Interesting note from Cowboy Cerrone’s coach Jafari Vanier … this camp was first time Cowboy has sparred regularly, twice a week, in a long time. One of the thoughts was to get him in there with young, unfamiliar partners that force him to focus on not getting hit.

Price (14-4) is the -159 favorite but is coming off his second career loss to Vicente Luque and has suffered finishes in each of his four career losses. Expect both fighters to come out of the blocks swinging, and although Price has proved his chin in the UFC, Cerrone has every chance at landing the finishing blow in this one.
