Lightweight Donald Cerrone (Pictured) will make his return to the Octagon when he meets veteran Yves Edwards at “UFC on FUEL TV 3.” The 155-pound affair was announced during Tuesday’s episode of “UFC Tonight” on FUEL TV.
The May 15th event takes place inside Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia.
Cerrone is looking to bounce back from a disappointing unanimous decision defeat to Nate Diaz at UFC 141. The loss snapped “Cowboy’s” six-fight winning streak, with four of those Ws coming in the big leagues in 2011.
Edwards has dropped two of his last three scraps and was most recently seen getting outpointed by Tony Ferguson this past December. The “Thugjitsu Master” has 60 fights under his belt.
FUEL TV will broadcast the event’s main card live.
Here are the athletes expected to appear in the show:
Igor Pokrajac vs. Thiago Silva
Tom Lawlor vs. Jason MacDonald
Donald Cerrone vs. Yves Edwards
