Anthony Pettis Unlikely To Face Donald Cerrone At UFC 150

Anthony Pettis’ manager, Mike Roberts, informed MMA Weekly that his fighter would not be able to make a rumored August 11 bout with Donald Cerrone at UFC 150.

While nothing was ever set in stone in regards to the bout, “Cowboy” is pushing hard for the event because he was born in Colorado, Springs, Colorado.

Pettis, who is recovering from shoulder surgery, will not likely be able to fight against until September. A Cerrone-Pettis bout could have been a strong match to produce another top contender in the UFC’s stacked lightweight division.

UFC 150 will feature a bout between Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar for the UFC lightweight title. Nate Diaz is also expected to be the next man to face the winner after his victory over Jim Miller.
