Aaron Rosa vs. Fabio Maldonado Set for UFC on Versus 6

via www.mma-brasil.com

Aaron Rosa will move back down to his natural weight class of light heavyweight at UFC on Versus 6, and he'll face Fabio Maldonado. Rosa competed at heavyweight at UFC 131, but has spent a lot of his career at 205. UFC.com has it:

Expect a fight to remember when 205-pound bangers Aaron Rosa and Fabio Maldonado meet on October 1st.

"Two exciting light heavyweight sluggers have verbally agreed to throw down October 1st in Washington D.C. as Aaron Rosa takes on Fabio Maldonado," said UFC President Dana White.

Rosa came in at a hefty 261 pounds at UFC 131 for his bout against Joey Beltran, but apparently he will have no issue with getting back to 205. He dropped that bout to Beltran by TKO, but it was a very exciting (if a bit sloppy) brawl that had the crowd on their feet. Maldonado is coming off a spirited decision loss to Kyle Kingsbury at the TUF 13 Finale, which won him a $40,000 fight of the night bonus. The bout is expected to take place on the preliminary portion of the card.
