Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone has just finished ending Rick Story's night with a redneck Matrix combo at UFC 202, and he's already wanting another fight.

This should come of no surprise. It's nearly a post-fight ritual now for Cerrone to sip a couple of Budweisers and talk about fighting again as soon as possible. However, Cerrone doesn't want just any opponent, this time he's after former UFC Welterweight champion, Robbie Lawler.

It looks like Cerrone may be rethinking his call-out of Eddie Alvarez for the Lightweight title, and decided to stay at Welterweight. Is this because Cerrone has looked the best in his whole career at this weight, or does he know something we don't? After all, Conor McGregor seems to be interested in the Alvarez fight, and whatever McGregor wants, he will probably get.

Either way, a bout between Cerrone and Lawler is a violent eruption of a fight you could put on any card, but adding that to UFC's first New York card could be crazy. Cerrone has shot up to #7 in the Welterweight rankings, so only the biggest match-ups await him in the division.

Check out "Sherlock" Cerrone with his sick combo below and tell us what you think about the match-up.
