Donald Cerrone vs. Adriano Martins Targeted for UFC on FOX 10
By FCF Staff
The Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to build the line-up for it’s upcoming January 25th card in Chicago, Illinois, as the promotion has announced that Donald Cerrone and Adriano Martins have agreed to fight on that date. The lightweight scrap will be part of UFC on FOX 10, which will be hosted by the city’s United Center.
Cerrone (21-6) is coming off an impressive, second round submission win over Evan Dunham at UFC 167, to rebound from the decision loss he suffered versus Rafael dos Anjos in August. The 30 year-old relayed recently that he intended to drop to featherweight after facing Dunham, but UFC President Dana White has stated he doesn’t think that’s the right move for the lightweight contender.
Martins (25-6) made his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 32 earlier this month and tapped out noted striker Daron Cruickshank with a second round, straight armbar. The 31 year-old joined the UFC after competing in Strikeforce, where he scored a unanimous decision win over Jorge Gurgel in January.
UFC on FOX 10 will be headlined by a lightweight bout between former champ Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson.
