Donald Cerrone vs. Rafael dos Anjos co-headlines UFC on FOX Sports 1 2 in Indy

Two highly ranked lightweights will clash in the co-main event of UFC on FOX Sports 1 2 in Indianapolis.

UFC officials today announced Donald Cerrone (20-5 MMA, 7-2 UFC) will meet fellow contender Rafael dos Anjos (19-6 MMA, 8-4 UFC) at the event. The announcement came via the Indianapolis Star.

UFC on FOX Sports 1 2 takes place Aug. 28. at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The event's main card airs on the soon-to-debut FOX Sports 1. Broadcast plans for the preliminary card haven't been announced.

Cerrone is currently ranked No. 11 and dos Anjos No. 14 in the USA TODAY Sports/ MMA lightweight rankings.

Cerrone recently scored a dominant and bloody unanimous-decision victory over K.J. Noons at UFC 160 to move to 3-1 in his past four fights. The other victories came over Melvin Guillard and Jeremy Stephens. The former WEC title challenger and well-rounded Greg Jackson protege has been one of Zuffa's biggest bonus collectors during his six years with the company. His 11 WEC and UFC fight-night awards have resulted in $410,000 in extra pay.

He now meets dos Anjos, a veteran who's finally emerged as a legit contender following a four-fight win streak. He picked up perhaps his most important win to date when he recently edged Evan Dunham at UFC on FX 8, though nearly every major media outlet scored it for Dunham. Still, the Brazilian has proven a top-level lightweight following wins over the likes of Mark Bocek, George Sotiropoulos and Terry Etim in recent years.

The latest UFC on FOX Sports 1 2 card includes:

• Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann
• Donald Cerrone vs. Rafael dos Anjos
•James Head vs. Bobby Voelker
•Sarah Kaufman vs. Sara McMann
•Kelvin Gastelum vs. Paulo Thiago
•Robert McDaniel vs. Brad Tavares

1) That's a good fight.

2) UFC on Fox Sports 1 followed by the number of the event... that's going to get annoying.

Cerrone should have this if he uses his kicks to establish range.

Cerrone needs his distance and timing otherwise he has a hard time establishing his rhythm. Once he does he looks really fluid out there.

Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
