“Cowboy” Cerrone saddles up for May match with Yves Edwards

Donald Cerrone will return to action in May as “Cowboy” has signed to face Yves Edwards at UFC on Fuel 3, a show set to take place May 15 from Fairfax, Virginia. The show, previously labeled as a UFC on FX event, will also feature Thiago Silva-Igor Pokrajac and Tom Lawlor-Jason MacDonald.

Cerrone (17-4) had a win streak snapped at the hands of Nate Diaz in the co-main event of UFC 141 last December. Prior to that, Cerrone had worked his way into contention for the UFC lightweight title by winning six in a row including success against Charles Oliveira and Dennis Siver.

Edwards (41-18-1) is one of the most experienced fighters in the UFC but is also coming off a loss, his to Tony Ferguson. Edwards is 4-2 in his last six Octagon appearances.


MMATraining Take: This should be a good match for Cerrone to get back on track, as Edwards is not afraid to stand and trade, and will be looking for a submission victory; much like Cerrone. Cerrone’s athletic ability could be the difference in this one.
