On Sunday, Feb. 18, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 126: Cerrone vs. Medeiros from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.

In the night’s main event, former lightweight title challenger Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone takes on Hawaii’s Yancy Medeiros in a welterweight contest. The veteran Cerrone has fallen on tough times of late, suffering the first losing streak of his 43-fight career. The New Mexico-based fighter has fallen to Darren Till, Robbie Lawler and Jorge Masvidal in his last three Octagon appearances. Medeiros, meanwhile, is trending in the opposite direction leading into the headlining affair. Like his opponent, Medeiros moved up to welterweight and has scored three straight finishes.

The action kicks off at 6 p.m. ET with two bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow on Fox Sports 1 at 7 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card taking place at 9 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
