The UFC makes its second trip to Ottawa, Canada for UFC Fight Night 151 on Saturday night. In the main event, two former UFC lightweight title challengers will meet with hopes of getting closer to another shot at gold.
After failing on a short notice attempt against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223, Al Iaquinta rebounded with a big win. He defeated Kevin Lee at UFC on Fox 31 by unanimous decision. He now looks for his second straight win when he enters the octagon in Ottawa.
His opponent will be none other than Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, owner of the most wins in UFC history. After a brief stint at welterweight, Cerrone dropped back down to lightweight in his last fight. That fight came at UFC Fight Night 143 when he faced Alexander Hernandez. He won his second consecutive fight that night as he finished Hernandez by TKO in round two.
