UFC 141 Results: 4 Fights to Get Donald Cerrone Back on Track
Tonight at UFC 141 Donald Cerrone and Nate Diaz put on a "Fight of the Night" performance.
Although Cerrone won four fights this year, Diaz' boxing proved to be too much as he handed Cerrone his first UFC loss.
Cerrone may have lost the fight, but he still has a bright UFC career ahead of him.
Here are four fights that will get him back on track.
It only took Kenny Florian two fights at featherweight to move back to lightweight.
Although a title is not looking like it will be in Florian’s future, he still may have some exciting fights left in him.
One thing Florian and Cerrone have in common is both men have been in three title fights and came up short.
A win for either guy would put them back on track and on the long road to a title fight.
The Loser of Melvin Guillard vs. Jim Miller
Both Guillard and Miller were two guys who were well on their way to title fights.
Guillard lost quickly to Joe Lauzon while Miller got beat down by Benson Henderson.
Either man would give Cerrone a tough challenge. But as we all know, there are no easy fights in the UFC.

Although Leonard Garcia and Donald Cerrone are friends and training partners, Cerrone has stated that he would drop down to 145 lbs and fight Garcia if he ever had to.
Garcia may not have the best record in the world, but he is a guy who is known for putting on absolute wars.
Cerrone is another guy that likes to stand and bang, and would bring it to Garcia.
Don't count Garcia out though because he's been known to have the judges on his side a time or two.
Although Cerrone may never drop down to featherweight, it would be exciting just to see these two go at it.
Although Guida and Cerrone are both members of Jackson MMA, Cerrone has stated in the past he would take on anybody.
Guida is coming off of a disappointing loss to Cerrone’s rival Benson Henderson.
Although Cerrone made a huge push in the lightweight division this year, Guida has teetered between title contender and gatekeeper for years.
Cerrona vs. Guida has fight of the night written all over it and could determine who could make yet another push for a title.
