Crunkilton vs. Cerrone set for June WEC event

Rich “Cleat” Crunkilton is scheduled to return to the WEC’s Octagon on June 1 at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif.

Crunkilton’s opponent will be Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, according to a recent profile article on Cerrone at the WEC’s official website.

A veteran of six WEC fights, Crunkilton last fought on March 26 in Las Vegas, where he recorded a unanimous decision victory over Sergio Gomez.

Cerrone, considered to be a top lightweight prospect, is a perfect 7-0 in his young mixed martial arts career. He has not fought since last September after being suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission following a positive test for a banned substance.

The WEC show in June, which will be televised on VERSUS, is scheduled to be headlined by a featherweight title defense by Urijah Faber against former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver.
