UFC On FOX 23: Cerrone To Take On Masvidal

Jorge Masvidal

Donald Cerrone asked for a quick turnaround, and the UFC delivered.

“Cowboy” will meet Jorge Masvidal at UFC on FOX 23 next month from Denver.

The card, which takes place January 28, features Valentina Shevchenko and Julianna Pena in a key bantamweight battle.

Cerrone (32-7) finished Matt Brown this past weekend at UFC 206 for his fourth win since moving up to welterweight. Masvidal (31-11) stopped Jake Ellenberger this month, but it came with controversy after the referee did not pause the bout when Ellenberger’s foot was stuck between the fence and cage floor.

Below is the current lineup:

Female Bantamweight: Julianna Pena vs. Valentina Shevchenko

Welterweight: Donald Cerrone vs. Jorge Masvidal

Heavyweight: Andrei Arlovski vs. Francis Ngannou

Middleweight: Hector Lombard vs. Brad Tavares

Middleweight: Sam Alvey vs. Nate Marquardt

Lightweight: Jason Gonzalez vs. J.C. Cottrell

Flyweight: Eric Shelton vs. Alexandre Pantoja

Bantamweight: Raphael Assuncao vs. Aljamain Sterling
