Lightweight brawlers Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and K.J. Noons have agreed to square off at UFC 160. The match-up was announced on Tuesday’s episode of UFC Tonight.
UFC 160 takes place May 25, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Cain Velasquez defends his UFC heavyweight strap against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in the night’s main event.
Cerrone (19-5, 1 NC) looks to rebound from a quick and decisive TKO loss at the hands of Anthony Pettis last month. Prior to the setback, the former WEC standout rattled off eight victories over nine fights, earning seven Zuffa post-fight bonuses in the process.
Noons (11-6), meanwhile, readies for his UFC debut following a rocky three-year run with Strikeforce, which saw the 30-year-old compile a 3-4 record inside the promotion’s hexagon. Noons most recently fought against Ryan Couture at Strikeforce’s final event, losing a controversial split decision.
