Despite not being able to escape in Austin last weekend, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone will enter the Octagon on July 2 at UFC 276.

Cowboy was prepared to fight Joe Lauzon on June 18, but a last-minute knee injury forced Lauzon out of the fight and Cerrone attended the event as a spectator. Previously, Cowboy and Lauzon were scheduled to fight on May 7, but Cerrone contracted food poisoning on the day of their UFC 274 game and the fight was postponed.

Cowboy will now step in at short notice to take on 170-pound MMA veteran Jim Miller in Las Vegas, according to a report from ESPN. Bobby Green was supposed to fight Miller but he dropped out of the fight for an unknown reason.

The fight is a rematch that lasted eight years. The fan favorites originally fought in July 2014 and Cowboy defeated Miller by KO in the second round.

Their UFC 276 match also has historical implications. Cowboy and Miller, along with former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski, have the most UFC wins of all time. All three fighters were victorious in promotion 23 times.

Barring a tie or no contest, either Cowboy or Miller will exit the T-Mobile arena with their 24th win. And once again they will put their name in the history books.
