http://mmajunkie.com/news/31442/anthony-pettis-vs-donald-cerrone-targeted-for-jan-26-possibly-ufc-on-fox-6.mma

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 Pett

Hope this is true. Especially the Chi part.

Considering how stacked Fox 5 is it's going to be interesting to see how the rest of this card fills out.

Sweet. Should be a great bout.
I love how competitive that division is. There are roughly a half dozen fighters at 155 that could beat anyone on a given night.

Def gonna be the main event, 5 rounds.

With the show in Brazil in Jan being an FX card I wonder if this means if the Superbowl show, UFC 156 will be Aldo/Edgar FW title and Hendo/Machida.

I think that would be a very nice Superbowl show.

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? Phone Post

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.

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