Donald Cerrone continues his assault on the 170-pound division when he tangles with the rough-and-tumble Jorge Masvidal in the UFC on FOX 23 co-main event later tonight (Sat., Jan. 28, 2017), slated for Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
Cerrone (32-7, 1 NC) has won four consecutive welterweight fights — all finishes — since losing his opportunity to take the lightweight belt of then-champion, Rafael dos Anjos, in Dec. 2015. The bout against Masvidal will mark his sixth trip inside the Octagon in a 13-month span.
The technically-sound Masvidal (31-11) will present the toughest 170-pound test for Cerrone to date. “Gamebred” recently won back-to-back bouts inside the Octagon for the first time since 2014, most recently scoring a technical knockout victory over rugged veteran Jake Ellenberger.
