A look at the Saturday, December 19th UFC on FOX fight card in Orlando, FL, where lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos aims for another win over Donald Cerrone.

The final UFC event of 2015 will be a FOX card in Orlando, Florida. In the main event, Rafael dos Anjos makes his first lightweight title defense against Donald Cerrone, whom he beat in August 2013 by unanimous decision. Cerrone hasn't lost since then, and RDA's only defeat was the ensuing fight vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov. The rematch should be fantastic.

In the co-main event, it's take 3 for heavyweights Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem. These two were booked for a title fight at UFC 146 when Overeem failed his drug test, then Overeem got injured when they were re-booked in a non-title bout at UFC 160. Also in store for fans is a lightweight tilt between Michael Johnson and Nate Diaz, as well as Bloody Elbow's own Josh Samman welcoming Tamdan McCrory back to the UFC.

Here's a look at the announced fights so far for Saturday, December 19th:

Rafael dos Anjos vs. Donald Cerrone
Junior dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem
Nate Diaz vs. Michael Johnson
