Donald Cerrone vs. Yves Edwards Set for UFC on FUEL 3

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

A fight between two lightweights looking to bounce back from tough losses has been announced for the upcoming UFC on Fuel 3 card.

Donald Cerrone will fight Yves Edwards at UFC on Fuel 3, which is scheduled for May 15 at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va.

It isn't immediately clear where on the card Cerrone vs. Edwards will be placed, but it's the type of fight that would likely serve as a main event on a Fuel card.

Cerrone had by far the biggest year of his mixed martial arts career in 2011, fighting in the Octagon five times and winning the first four before losing to Nate Diaz on Dec. 30. Cerrone won two Fight of the Night bonuses, one Knockout of the Night and one Submission of the Night in 2011 and finished the year making about half a million dollars, but the loss to Diaz at the end of the year left a bitter taste in his mouth.

Edwards fought four times in 2011, going 2-2. In his most recent fight, on December 3, he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Tony Ferguson.
