Cerrone-Medeiros To Headline UFC Austin
A welterweight match between Donald Cerrone and Yancy Medeiros is all but official for the UFC Austin main event on Feb. 18th, originally reported by MMA Fighting.
Cerrone is looking to break a three fight losing streak, after winning his first four at 170 pounds. His most recent fight was a first-round knockout loss to Darren Till at UFC Gdansk on Oct. 21.
Medeiros meanwhile, is just starting to come into his own. The Waianae, Hawaii native won a thrilling, back-and-forth brawl against Alex Oliveira at UFC 218 via third-round TKO. That gave Medeiros three straight victories and four in his past five fights.
Medeiros earned a Fight of the Night bonus for the bout with Oliveira, his third postfight bonus in his past four fights and fifth overall. Cerrone has 18 bonuses between the UFC and WEC, the most combined bonuses in company history.
