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.
