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.

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.
