UFC lightweight contender and New Jersey native Kurt Pellegrino (14-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC) will fight in hid home state for the first time in more than four years.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the promotion that Pellegrino has committed to fight at UFC 111 at the Prudential Center in March.
An opponent for Pellegrino has yet to be determined.
The bout will be the 30-year-old's first since an August win over Josh Neer. Pellegrino was expected to face Frankie Edgar at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale in December, but herniated discs forced "Batman" off of the card.

wonder who he will fight?
I'd like to see him fight Lauzon..he should be ready to go again by then. Plus they would probably want Joe on that Jersey card if possible.

Kurt is an awesome figher, I enjoy watching him fight and I always pull for him. I would love to see him fight Diaz again but I guess that wont happen.

Lauzon would be an exciting fight.
