Donald Cerrone To Face KJ Noons At UFC 160

A lightweight fight between Donald Cerrone and KJ Noons has been confirmed for May 25th’s UFC 160 event in Las Vegas.

Cerrone is coming off a TKO loss to Anthony Pettis at ‘UFC On FOX 6’ last month that put an end to a two-fight winning streak, leaving him at 6-2 since joining the UFC from the WEC.

Meanwhile, Noons recent record has been a disappointment, losing four of his last five fights over in the Strikeforce promotion, though many people, including Dana White, believed he won his last bout with Ryan Couture which is why he’s still managed to secure a place in the UFC.

As is traditionally the case for Memorial Day weekend the UFC appear to be building a strong card here with Cerrone Vs Noons joining the likes of Cain Velasquez Vs Antonio Silva, Junior Dos Santos Vs Alistair Overeem and Glover Teixeira Vs Ryan Bader to form one of the most inticing line-ups of the year so far.
