With the proposed upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter now going to Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen, a clash of lightweight contenders between WEC imports Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone has now been slated to take place in January. While no official date nor venue has been assigned to the exciting lightweight match-up. MMAWeekly has confirmed that both men have agreed to the bout, with the winner likely receiving a title shot.
The delay comes due to a lull in former WEC champion Anthony Pettis’ recovery from shoulder surgery.
Cerrone is 6-1 in the promotion, currently riding a two-fight win-streak while Pettis has been slightly less active, putting together a 2-1 run inside the octagon.
