Everything is bigger in Texas, especially Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone apparently.

The UFC’s official poster for its UFC Austin show on Feb. 18 features the longtime fan favorite at the forefront, looking like he’s a weight class bigger than his upcoming opponent Yancy Medeiros:

Cerrone and Medeiros are on a collision course, but their careers are moving in opposite directions. The 34-year-old Cerrone (32-10, 1 NC) has lost three straight fights after finishing his first four opponents at 170 pounds. He has spent the majority of his career competing at lightweight.

Another former 155er, Medeiros (15-4, 1 NC) has won three straight. That run includes a Fight of the Year candidate this past December against Alex Oliveira, which Medeiros won by third-round TKO.

In main card heavyweight action, Houston’s own Derrick Lewis (18-5, 1 NC) will take on Marcin Tybura (16-3).
