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.
