'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.

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?
