Cerrone (20-5, 1 NC) looks to continue his climb back up the ladder after crumbling to Anthony Pettis in just two-and-a-half minutes at UFC on FOX 6. The loss was Cerrone's second in UFC No. 1 contender fights, prompting "Cowboy" to seek the help of a sports psychologist to uncover why he continues to fall short in high-profile bouts.
Dos Anjos (19-6), meanwhile, rides into the bout on a wave of momentum after extending his UFC-career high winning streak to four straight. The Brazilian holds 12 Octagon appearances to his name since 2008, but only recently seems to have put everything together with consecutive victories over Kamal Shalorus, Anthony Njokuani, Mark Bocek and Evan Dunham.
