It would appear that a lightweight showdown between Joe Lauzon and Anthony Pettis is on track for February of next year, according to Pettis’ Twitter account.
“Looks like I’m waiting until February,” Pettis wrote last week.
Lauzon made mention of the fight on his own Twitter account, writing, “It’s not that far off…three months to train, one month to recoup. It’s the best idea ever.”
Both Pettis (14-2) and Lauzon (21-6) were successful earlier this month at UFC 136, scoring victories over Jeremy Stephens and Melvin Guillard. The two quickly went to work on trying to get the other one inside the Octagon, and both men seemed excited about the prospects of the fight.
No word from the UFC concerning the proposed bout has been made. If it is made, the winner would likely be very close to a title shot against current UFC 155-pound champion Frankie Edgar.
