Jersey native to fight at home!
According to MMAJunkie, 14-4 lightweight Kurt Pellegrino (6-3 in UFC) will fight in his home state of New Jersey for the first time in over four years, as he has signed to compete at UFC 111 at the Prudential Centrer on March 27.
Pellegrino hasn't fought since an August victory over Josh Neer. He was scheduled to face Frankie Edgar at the Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale, but that fight was scrapped due to injury.
No opponent has yet been announced.
