RUMOR: Cerrone/Pettis set for FOX 5 - Title shot on the line. (updated)

We’ve heard rumors and speculation, but a source has just confirmed to VigilanteMMA that Donald Cerrone will fight Anthony Pettis at 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 added to the card.

Pettis has been waiting for his title shot ever since he defeated Ben Henderson for the WEC title. But his hands will be full with Cowboy. Cerrone has run off six wins in seven UFC fights and like Pettis, tends to be a crowd pleaser every time out. This one is sure to fire up the fans.

The other three fights already announced for the show are a lightweight title fight between Henderson and Nate Diaz; Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Alexander Gustafsson; and BJ Penn vs. Rory MacDonald. The title eliminator between Cerrone and Pettis could steal the show.

As Dana White hoped, the lightweight division is on fire right now, just days after the Henderson/Edgar fight ended the string of re-matches for the UFC belt.

If this is true, and I'm not quite sure how reliable the source is but if this is correct than damn.


That should be on PPV, a title fight, two title eliminators, and BJ's return? They're really going all out here.

Unreal card.

I may throw a party.

As far as the fight goes, not a fan of either fighter. As much as I've been a detractor of 'Cowboy', he's proven he has some legitimate skills when he fights with his head and not his emotions like he did against Nate. Pettis' KO of Lauzon was very impressive, but I think he has a lot more flash than he does skill.

Cowboy takes this fight by either decision or submission.

This might be the greatest main card ever. Besides the name value, there's no way any of these fights is going to flop. Incredible.

This card seems so fake, it's just too good to be true. Hopefully injuries stay away from this. Can't wait for this show.
