Light Heavyweight Bout Added To UFC on Versus 6 Prelims

Rosa, Maldonado booked for D.C.

UFC light heavyweights Aaron Rosa and Fabio Maldonado will face off on the preliminary card of UFC on Versus 6.

The event takes place Oct. 1 in Washington, D.C. It’s headlined by a UFC bantamweight title fight between Dominick Cruz and Demetrious Johnson.

Rosa made his UFC debut as a heavyweight last June against Joey Beltran. The pair put on an exciting – if not entirely ugly – fight that was won by Beltran in the third round.

Maldonado also had an exciting fight in his last appearance, losing to Kyle Kingsbury by a controversial decision.
