The Ultimate Fighting Championship has announced today that light-heavyweight Aaron Rosa will take on Fabio Maldonado at the promotion’s upcoming, October 1st, UFC Live 6 card in Washington, DC.
The card will be hosted by the city’s Verizon Center and will be broadcast live on Versus.

Maldonado (18-4) lost by unanimous decision to Kyle Kingsbury at the TUF Finale in June, after the boxer’s successful Octagon debut in October, when he stopped James McSweeney in round three. The loss to Kingsbury was Maldonado’s first in twelve fights.
The October 1st UFC Live 6 card will feature a bantamweight bout between champion Dominick Cruz and challenger Demetrious Johnson in the main event.
Main card bouts that have been confirmed for the card include Charlie Brenneman vs. Anthony Johnson, Pat Barry vs. Stefan Struve and Mac Danzig vs. Matt Wiman.
