UFC On FOX 17 Lands RDA-Cerrone

ufc on fox 17

Rafael dos Anjos will make his first UFC lightweight title defense to close out 2015, meeting Donald Cerrone at UFC on FOX 17.

Set for December 19 from the Amway Center in Orlando, the main card airs live on FOX.

Dos Anjos (24-7) won the belt this past March when he dominated Anthony Pettis and claimed a decision. He won all five rounds vs. Pettis and improved to 13-5 in his UFC career.

Cerrone (28-6) is on an eight-fight win streak and is 15-3 overall inside the Octagon. “Cowboy” typically likes to fight as often as possible, but will have been on the sidelines for seven months before fighting for the title.

This is the second meeting between the two, as dos Anjos claimed a decision back in 2013.

The title fight is the lone bout announced so far for the event.
