Donald Cerrone vs. Adriano Martins verbally agreed to UFC on Fox 10 fight

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

The UFC on FOX 10 card is shaping up fast, and Donald Cerrone is the latest addition to the event at the United Center in Chicago, Ill. The UFC announced on Saturday that the former WEC lightweight title challenger has verbally agreed to return to the Octagon to face Brazilian veteran Adriano Martins on Jan. 25.

Coming off an impressive submission victory over Evan Dunham at UFC 167, Cerrone (21-6, 1 no-contest) looks to win back-to-back fights in the UFC for the first time since 2012, when he scored consecutive wins over Jeremy Stephens and Melvin Guillard, after going 2-2 in his last four appearances.

Martins (25-6), a former Jungle Fight lightweight champion, won the "submission of the night" bonus in his Octagon debut, when he tapped Daron Cruickshank with a kimura at UFC Fight Night 32 in Goiania, Brazil. Riding a six-fight win streak, Martins has 14 stoppage victories over his MMA career with 11 submissions.

UFC on FOX 10 is headlined by the lightweight contest featuring former UFC champion Ben Henderson and former Strikeforce champion Josh Thomson.
