Cowboy and Barboza Clash in Orlando

UFC on FOX 11 gets an explosive lightweight matchup...
The April 19 UFC on FOX event in Orlando just got a dose of explosive lightweight action, as Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone has verbally agreed to face Muay Thai master Edson Barboza in what promises to be a Fight of the Year candidate.

Cerrone recently set a Zuffa record with his first round knockout of Adriano Martins on January 25 that marked his 13th UFC / WEC fight night bonus. Brazil's Barboza has bolstered his bank account with his performances as well, picking up five UFC bonuses in his eight Octagon bouts.
