Donald Cerrone

UFC lightweight and upcoming title challenger Donald Cerrone finally got what he’s been waiting for and will meet the champ, Rafael dos Anjos, at UFC on FOX 17 on Dec. 19, 2015, in Orlando, Florida.

Cerrone basically threatened to go up to welterweight and take a fight if the fight wasn’t made official and it looks like the UFC had no choice. The ‘Cowboy’ recently spoke on Inside MMA and said that this time around the fight is going to be completely different than their first meeting.

“Starting slow. That’s what I always go out there and do. He capitalized very well. He hit me hard. Maybe starting a little faster. We’ve got five rounds, man. Cardio is my thing. Five rounds with me is going to be a scary thing for him. Hopefully he trains really hard and does what he has to do. I’ll be ready. There won’t be a question in my mind that I won’t be the new lightweight champion.”

Do you think things will go differently this time around?
