Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will close out another packed mixed martial arts (MMA) season this weekend (Sat., Dec. 19, 2015) with UFC on FOX 17: “dos Anjos vs. Cerrone,” which takes place inside Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
Lightweight champion, Rafael dos Anjos, will attempt to make his first 155-pound title defense again Donald Cerrone, who he previously defeated via unanimous decision back in Aug. 2013. “Cowboy,” though, has been perfect (8-0) since that setback and has never looked better.
In the co-main event of the evening, hard-hitting Heavyweight contenders Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem will finally settle their score after years of trash talk and missed opportunities. Nate Diaz will also return to action after an extended self-imposed hiatus, taking on Michael Johnson in a meaningful 155-pound scrap.
All that and so much more.
