    Donald Cerrone meets Adriano Martins at UFC on FOX 10 in Chicago

    The UFC’s two most recent “Submission of the Night” winners have been booked to face each other in January.

    Fresh off his win a week ago against Evan Dunham, Donald Cerrone (21-6 MMA, 8-3 UFC) will meet Adriano Martins (25-6 MMA, 1-0 UFC) in a lightweight bout when the UFC returns to Chicago for UFC on FOX 10. UFC officials announced the new fight booking on Saturday.

    UFC on FOX 10 takes place Jan. 25 at United Center in the “Windy City.” It will be the third straight January the UFC has been to the venue for a FOX card the week prior to the NFL’s Super Bowl. The main card will air on FOX following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and MMAjunkie.

    Cerrone fights a lot, he has a fight and a week or 2 later he is already scheduled for the next one
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    I just counted this will be his 12th fight in 3 years with the ufc. He also had 10 WEC fights in a three year span. Pretty crazy numbers.

    I really think thats the way it should be. Barring any injuries or anything, I dont see why someone cant fight every three months

    As was mentioned long term brain injuries would be a big reason... other would be recuperation time some guys just heal quicker and can get back to 100% quicker.

    Then it also comes down to outside commitments... a guy like Cerrone may not have much going on besides fighting where someone else may spend alot more of their time doing PR commitments

    It's a good thing the UFC has a roster of not-even-top-30 fighters to keep Cerrone's brand looking good.
