UFC Fight Night 45: Cerrone Victims Meet In Barboza-Dunham

ufc fight night 45

Two lightweights looking to rebound from submission losses to Donald Cerrone will square off at UFC Fight Night 45, as Edson Barboza and Evan Dunham have agreed to meet.

Set for July 16 from The Revel in Atlantic City, Cerrone will be meeting Jim Miller in the main event. The main card airs on FOX Sports 1 with prelims streaming on Fight Pass.

Barboza (13-2) suffered his second career loss – and second UFC defeat – when Cerrone locked in a rear-naked choke last month. The defeat snapped a three-fight win streak for him, which included a pair of finishes. The Brazilian went a perfect 3-0 last year.

Dunham (14-5) holds a 7-5 record with the promotion and was submitted by Cerrone in November. He is just 1-3 in his last four overall after going 6-2 in his first eight fights.

Below is a list of bouts announced to date:

Lightweight: Donald Cerrone vs. Jim Miller

Bantamweight: Aljamain Sterling vs. Hugo Viana

Flyweight: John Lineker vs. Alptekin Ozkilic
