According to Donald Cerrone, things are in place for his fight with Myles Jury this January at UFC Fight Night 59.
The lightweight contest has yet to be made official by the UFC, but it is expected to join a main event between Conor McGregor and Dennis Siver. The card takes place January 18 from Boston’s TD Garden, with action airing on FOX Sports 1.
The two were once rumored for a fight already this year, but Cerrone (25-6) met Eddie Alvarez instead. Jury (15-0) is unbeaten since appearing on The Ultimate Fighter, while “Cowboy” is on a five-fight win streak.
UPDATE: UFC president Dana White has announced that Cerrone-Jury will be the co-main event for UFC 182 on January 3 from Las Vegas. That card lost Ronda Rousey-Cat Zingano earlier in the day to a February event.
