Despite announcing his next fight would take at featherweight, much to the disapproval of the UFC president Dana White, Donald Cerrone (pictured) will actually meet Adriano Martins in a lightweight affair at UFC on FOX 10.
The 155-pound scrap was announced Saturday.
Cerrone has alternated between wins and losses over his past five outings. He is fresh off last Saturday’s submission victory over Evan Dunham at UFC 167.
Adriano will be riding a six-fight winning streak into the shootout. He submitted Daron Cruickshank earlier this month in his Octagon debut.
UFC on FOX 10 takes place January 25 inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois. FOX will broadcast the main card live starting at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
Here is the show’s current lineup:
Jeremy Stephens vs. Darren Elkins
Donald Cerrone vs. Adriano Martins
Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Stipe Miocic
Benson Henderson vs. Josh Thomson
