Rafael Dos Anjos, Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone To Fight For UFC Lightweight Title Dec. 19

Wednesday saw the announcement of the UFC’s return to the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla., on Dec. 19.

The FOX-televised card has a main event, as UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos defends his crown for the first time in a rematch against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.

The two 155-pound stars first met in August of 2013, with dos Anjos winning a three-round unanimous decision.

Since that initial meeting, Albuquerque, N.M.’s Cerrone has gone on an eight-fight tear that includes four post-fight bonuses and victories over the likes of Edson Barboza, Jim Miller, Eddie Alvarez, Myles Jury and Benson Henderson, earning him a world title shot.
