If it ain't free, it ain't me.
The promotion announced as much on its website today, saying:
"Two exciting light heavyweight sluggers have verbally agreed to throw down October 1st in Washington D.C. as Aaron Rosa takes on Fabio Maldonado," said UFC President Dana White.
Maldonado will be looking to bounce back from a unanimous decision loss to Kyle Kingsbury at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 Finale back on June 4. The blow of the loss was softened with the "Fight of the Night" bonus that came with it, but defeat is defeat, after all.
"The Mexicutioner" battered the "Big Red" around the cage before eventually overwhelming him in the final round. It was the Octagon debut for Rosa, who wasted little time deciding he's much better served to try his luck at 205-pounds.
And don't forget that heavyweight hustle that pits Pat Barry vs. Stefan Struve.
