Lightweights Donald Cerrone and Adriano Martins have verbally agreed to square off at UFC on Fox 10, the promotion Saturday announced via Twitter.

Headlined by a 155-pound bout between former UFC champ Benson Henderson and ex-Strikeforce titlist Josh Thomson, the event is set to take place Jan. 25 at United Center in Chicago.

Cerrone, 30, is just one week removed from a second-round triangle-choking of Evan Dunham at UFC on 167. The Greg Jackson-trained “Cowboy” alternated wins and losses in his four 2013 outings, topping Dunham and K.J. Noons, while suffering a knockout loss to Anthony Pettis and a decision defeat against Rafael dos Anjos.

A decorated grappler with multiple World Jiu-Jitsu Championships to his name, 31-year-old Martins won his Nov. 9 Octagon debut by tapping Daron Cruickshank with a straight armbar. Despite his ground credentials, Martins holds only three of his 25 victories by submission, with 11 coming via knockout.
