Pettis is currently working his way back into fighting shape after undergoing shoulder surgery. He defeated Joe Lauzon via knockout earlier this year, and appears to be a contender in the stacked lightweight division.
Cerrone, meanwhile, is set to face Melvin Guillard Saturday night at UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar II. It appears that “Cowboy” and Pettis are on a collision course for a future encounter inside the Octagon.
