Who's ready for a top 10 lightweight battle?

IndyStar.com is reporting that the upcoming UFC on Fox Sports 1 2 has added a bout between Donald Cerrone and Rafael dos Anjos to the upcoming (August 28, 2013) event in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Cerrone (20-5) has experienced his ups and downs inside the Octagon, but he bounced back nicely from a tough loss to Anthony Pettis by absolutely destroying K.J. Noons less than two weeks ago. The refocused "Cowboy" moved back into the mix at 155 pounds and is hoping a victory over dos Anjos will get him in contention once more.

Dos Anjos (19-6) had a rough start to his UFC career, but has truly blossomed as of late, scoring four straight wins in the lightweight division including victories over the likes of Mark Bocek, Anthony Njokuani and most recently, a hard-fought decision against Evan Dunham in Brazil.

The winner of this bout will definitely make their mark among the top contenders in the lightweight division.

UFC on FOX Sports 1 (part deux) will feature a welterweight rematch between top division contenders Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann as well a recently announced bout between Sarah Kaufman and Sara McMann.
