Donald Cerrone UFC

On Wednesday afternoon, it was announced a thrilling lightweight shootout between Donald Cerrone (pictured) and Rafael dos Anjos will co-headline UFC on Fox Sports 1 2.

The August 28 event takes place inside Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Cerrone has won nine of his past 11 scraps, but his two losses during his torrid run have been devastating. A lopsided unanimous decision defeat to Nate Diaz cost him a shot at 155-pound champ Benson Henderson and Anthony Pettis essentially earned a top contender moniker after TKO’ing “Cowboy” in January.

Dos Anjos, meanwhile, has quietly rattled off four consecutive victories inside the Octagon. The Brazilian was last seen beating Evan Dunham at UFC on FX 8.

Fox Sports 1 will broadcast the entire event live.

Here is the card’s current lineup:

Sara McMann vs. Sarah Kaufman

James Head vs. Bobby Voelker

Robert McDaniel vs. Brad Tavares

Kelvin Gastelum vs. Paulo Thiago

Donald Cerrone vs. Rafael dos Anjos

Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann
