UFC on FOX 11: Donald Cerrone-Edson Barboza Added to April 19th Card
By FCF Staff
Donald Cerrone has been booked for his second fight of the 2014 campaign, as the lightweight will fight Edson Barboza at UFC on FOX 11, April 19th, in Orlando, Florida.
Cerrone (22-6) is coming off a highlight reel, KO win over Adriano Martins at UFC on FOX 10, January 25th, after tapping out Evan Dunham at UFC 167 in November. The #8 ranked lightweight is 3-2 in his last five bouts, with his losses during that stretch coming against Rafael dos Anjos and champion Anthony Pettis.
Barboza (13-1) worked his way to a decision win over Danny Castillo in his last outing, which took place at UFC on FOX 9 in December. The lightweight has won three straight fights and Barboza’s only loss to date came against Jamie Varner in May, 2012.
UFC on FOX 11 will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Travis Browne and Fabricio Werdum and will be hosted by Orlando’s Amway Centre.
