As requested, Donald Cerrone is getting right back to work.

Cerrone will meet Jorge Masvidal at UFC on FOX 23 on Jan. 28 in Denver, MMA Fighting has learned. The promotion is expected to officially announce the fight shortly.

Cerrone (32-7, 1 NC) just beat Matt Brown via third-round knockout Saturday night in Toronto at UFC 206. Before the fight, he was campaigning to fight anyone in his hometown of Denver, and the UFC obliged.

Masvidal (31-11) has also been campaigning to fight Cerrone for several months. He especially went on the offensive since defeating Jake Ellenberger earlier this month at the TUF 24 Finale.

UFC on FOX 23, headlined by Julianna Peña vs. Valentina Shevchenko, will take place at the Pepsi Center in Denver.
