Cerrone vs. Dos Anjos to co-main second UFC on FOX Sports 1

 

Earlier this week the UFC announced it's second UFC on FOX Sports 1, which will take place August 26th in Indianoplis and feature a welterweight main event between Carlos Condit and Martin Kampann. And today the UFC announced the co-main event, which should be a very exciting fight in the lightweight division:

No. 6-ranked lightweight contender Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (20-5) has agreed to meet No. 10- ranked contender Rafael Dos Anjos (19-6) on Aug. 28 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse as part of the UFC on Fox Sports 1 card.

Cerrone, one of the UFC’s most popular fighters, is coming off a dominating win over veteran fighter KJ Noons at UFC 160.

Dos Anjos has been on a four-fight win streak that has seen him creep back into title contention.

Solid match up. Dos Anjos has been doin alight lately, but Cerrone's a whole new level. This was a guy who made Siver look like an amateur after he went on a tear, who went in front of a top prospect in Oliveira and dismantled him, who stood up to Guillard and finished him. I really like RDA and think he's really coming along nicely, but I think Cerrone's too long, talented and well-rounded. Would be happy for RDA to prove me wrong though.

Was hoping to see Cerrone-Thomson. I see Dos Anjos getting KO'd, dude didn't even win his last fight.
