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.
