Get ready for some mean-mugging.

As MMAjunkie.com first reported Sunday night, Donald Cerrone and Nate Diaz will meet at December's UFC 141 event.

UFC brass today announced the contest and confirmed that the intriguing matchup will take the card's co-main-event slot.

Great fight fits co-main event slot prefect as it will for sure produce fireworks! ill take Cerrone though by Decision or maybe a KO but Diaz has a pretty good chin, either way im suuuuuper excited

This is definitely co-main event material. Both fighters are strong submission finishers, but what will make this fight entertaining is the stand up. Although both fighters are not known for knock outs, I predict the fight to end in one. I just have a hunch.

Totally agree. Both are highly aggressive on the feet and challenge their opponents range by nature.

I bet you'll hear my whistle blowin' when my train rolls in
It goes (whistle) like dust in the wind
Stoned pimp, stoned freak, stoned out of my mind
I once was lost, but now I'm just blind
Palm trees and weeds, scabbed knees and rice
Get a map to the stars, find Heidi Fleiss
And if the price is right I'm gonna make my bid boy

And let Cali-for-ny-aye know why they call me
Cowboy baby
With the top let back and the sunshine shining
Cowboy baby
West coast chillin? with the Boone's Wine
I wanna be a Cowboy baby
Ridin' at night 'cause I sleep all day
Cowboy baby
I can smell a pig from a mile away

TKO - - in the 2nd for Mr. Cerrone

I'm wondering how long it takes Cerrone to start with the childish/idiotic insults.

I'll admit, Diaz is one of my favorites but that has nothing to do with it. I'd root for myself to contract herpes from a prison gangbang before I'd root for Cerrone.

WAR NATE! WHOOP 'DAT TRICK!

You say it like it's that bad of a thing.
