Fight of the Night?
Donald Cerrone will try to get himself back into the 155-pound title hunt at the expense of surging Brazilian contender Rafael Dos Anjos, when they lock horns in the UFC Fight Night 27 co-main event later tonight (Aug. 28, 2013) at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Cerrone (20-5) has experienced his ups and downs inside the Octagon, but bounced back nicely from a tough loss to Anthony Pettis by running through K.J. Noons earlier this year. The refocused "Cowboy" moved back into the mix at 155 pounds and is hoping a victory over the grappling wizrd will get him in contention once more.
Assuming this doesn't get in his way.
Dos Anjos (19-6) had a rough start to his UFC career, but has 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.
There's a reason he's our "fighter to watch."
