Donald Cerrone will attempt to lasso Yves Edwards at UFC on Fuel 3

A lightweight battle between Donald Cerrone and Yves Edwards has been added to UFC on Fuel  3 according to a report during this week’s episode of UFC Tonight. Both men are known for their well-rounded styles and willingness to strike meaning fans should definitely be in for a treat when the two cross paths in May at the event.

Cerrone (17-4) will be attempting to get back on track after Nate Diaz halted his six-fight win streak, and ended his chances at a title-shot, in December at UFC 141. Among the numerous apt adversaries in Cerrone’s win column are Dennis Siver and Charles Oliveira.

With sixty fights under his belt, Edwards is one of the most experienced fighters in the UFC. The 35-year old holds a 4-2 mark in his last six Octagon fights but is coming off a loss to Tony Ferguson.

Other match-ups set for the still-developing card include Tom Lawlor vs. Jason MacDonald and Thiago Silva vs. Igor Pokrajac.

    This should be a great match up… BUT with a win I don’t think this moves Cerrone any closer to where he wants to be… perhaps this will get him back on track and put in another great year of fighting similar to last.

    Agreed Rece. I almost think they are giving this fight to Cerrone so he can get back on track. I think they want him at the top and since they already lost Melvin by giving him a top guy, they’re gonna give Donald someone a little lower on the totem.

    Side note: I wonder if Cerrone and Guida would ever fight?

  • BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo I dont like this matchup. Yves is a rough and tumble veteran of the sport and he’s always in an exciting fight, but seriously this is a huge step backward for The Cowboy. I hope Yves gets a hangnail and cant fight so that the UFC really thinks about this one and makes Barboza vs. Cerrone…..then again maybe they also dont want Donald to derail another rising star as he did it with both Siver AND Oliveria last year.
