Expect Anthony Pettis-Donald Cerrone To Be Announced Soon, Says Pettis’ Manager

Former WEC fighters Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone have engaged in a verbal battle over the past few months. Now, with Pettis recovering from surgery, it appears that a bout between the two is on the horizon.

“We’re currently working, trying to put together the avenue for which they’re going to fight,” said Mike Roberts, manager for Pettis, during an interview with MMAWeekly Radio recently. “I would look for an announcement sooner rather than later for when that fight’s going to be. Hopefully, it’s the sooner the better because Anthony can’t wait to get his hands on him.”

Cerrone has won two consecutive fights since a loss to Nate Diaz, the current No. 1 contender in the division. He bested Melvin Guillard last month via first round stoppage.

“‘Cowboy’ made it personal,” Roberts said, “now he gets to answer for it.”
