'Cowboy' Cerrone vs. Anthony Pettis targeted for Jan. 26th UFC event

source: mmajunkie.com

A long-anticipated fight between lightweight contenders Anthony Pettis (15-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) and Donald Cerrone (19-4 MMA, 6-1 UFC) is nearly set.

Sources close to the promotion told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the fighters are targeted to meet at a UFC event on Jan. 26, possibly UFC on FOX 6.

A venue for the event could not be confirmed at the time of this writing, though sources said Chicago is one candidate.

Two of the top 155-pound fighters in the UFC, Pettis and Cerrone previously were targeted for UFC 150, which took place Aug. 11 at Denver's Pepsi Center. However, a shoulder injury and subsequent surgery forced Pettis to withdraw from the fight.

Pettis is going to smash him to ash! I'll enjoy it while it lasts, though.

The two free shows would be like a build up, pre game. One hell of a pregame at that! I think it will help build the PPV.

So their schedule is gonna be jan 19 UFC on FX, jan 26 UFC on FOX, then feb 2 UFC 156? That's a lot of UFC fights in 3 weeks. Do you guys think the back to back weeks on free tv will help PPV numbers for UFC 156 or hurt them?
