Donald Cerrone and Adriano Martins Verbally Agree to Fight at UFC on Fox 10

A lightweight fight between Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Adriano Martins has been verbally agreed to for UFC on Fox 10 on Jan. 25, UFC officials announced on Saturday.

The Cerrone-Martins bout is added to the developing fight card, which will take place in Chicago at the city's United Center.

Cerrone (21-6, 1 N.C.) is just a week out from finishing Evan Dunham at UFC 167 last weekend in Las Vegas. “Cowboy” slapped on a triangle choke to finish Dunham in the second round of their bout.

Martins (25-6) is relatively new to the UFC, but has over 3o professional fights to his credit. In his last fight, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist showed off his best attributes by finishing Daron Cruickshank with a straight armbar in the second round of their UFC Fight Night 32 bout.

UFC on Fox 10 is headlined by a lightweight fight between former UFC champ Benson Henderson and former Strikeforce champ Josh Thomson.
