Donald Cerrone vs. Rafael dos Anjos set for UFC on FS 1: Indianapolis

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

A lightweight battle between Donald Cerrone and Rafael dos Anjos will be the co-main event of UFC on FS 1 2 on August 28th.

It looks like the UFC's event in Indianapolis just got another excellent fight, this time in the lightweight division. The card was already guaranteed to be good with a Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann rematch on top, but the co-main might be just as good. The Indy Star has the news:

No. 6-ranked lightweight contender Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone (20-5) has agreed to meet No. 10- ranked contender Rafael Dos Anjos (19-6) on Aug. 28 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse as part of the UFC on Fox Sports 1 card.

Cerrone is coming off a big win over K.J. Noons at UFC 160 that helped him rebound from a quick loss to Anthony Pettis in the fight before that. Cowboy is 7-2 in the UFC overall. Dos Anjos picked up a very close unanimous decision over Evan Dunham at UFC on FX 8 which many people had going the other way. He has won four fights in a row and is 8-4 in the UFC overall.
