Anthony Pettis-Donald Cerrone rumored for fight at UFC on FOX 6

It looks like UFC lightweights Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone finally have a date for their long awaited clash in the cage after months of back-and-forth banter and some injury-related delays. Better yet, the bout appears poised to take place on network television in the form of a fight at UFC on FOX 6.

According to a report from MMAJunkie, Pettis and Cerrone will butt heads on January 26 with Chicago as a likely destination.

“Showtime” has been shelved since February due to a shoulder injury and subsequent infection. Prior to experiencing his health-related setbacks, the 15-2 former WEC champion had picked up a pair of consecutive victories including a knockout of Joe Lauzon. He also holds a memorable past win over current lightweight title-holder Benson Henderson.

Like Pettis, Cerrone has shown himself to be one of the best fighters in the UFC to come over from WEC, compiling a 6-1 record in the 18 months he’s called the Octagon home. He holds an overall mark of 19-4 with past triumphs against the likes of Jamie Varner, Jeremy Stephens, and Melvin Guillard.

    This is one of those bittersweet matchups for me. On one hand, it’s an almost guaranteed contender for FOTY. On the other hand, I’d really hate to see either of these guys lose right now.
