Another massive fight could be headed for the already loaded UFC on FOX 5 card scheduled for December 8th. According to Vigilante MMA, Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis will finally meet in a heavily anticipated fight between the former WEC stars, and it will be for the #1 contender slot in the ever-crowded 155 lbs division.
We’ve heard rumors and speculation, but a source has just confirmed to VigilanteMMA that Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis will be added to UFC on Fox 5—and it will be a number one contender’s fight. Not only is this event shaping up to be one huge show, but the added stipulation should create quite a buzz for the latest fight being added to the card.
We’ve also learned that the contract is now in the hands of Pettis for final approval. Although he apparently hasn’t signed it yet, Cerrone has already started pressuring Pettis to do so in quick fashion.
