Donald Cerrone will return to the Octagon later this year, taking on former Strikeforce fighter K.J. Noons at UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva II. The bout was announced on UFC Tonight Tuesday.
Cerrone (19-5) was defeated by Anthony Pettis last month, snapping a two-fight win streak for “Cowboy.” He was finished in the first round by Pettis after a nasty liver kick.
Noons (11-6) is a former EliteXC champion, but has lost his last two fights and four of his previous five. He has dropped all four of those bouts via decision.
