Anthony Pettis and Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone are both in the twilight of their careers and coming off spectacular losses.
Cerrone suffered a stoppage loss against Justin Gaethje that sent fans wild. While Pettis was last seen in the octagon when he faced Nate Diaz where he suffered a brawling decision loss.
With both men without a signed fight it appears they have done the matchmaking for the UFC and contacted each other.
Duke Roufus, Pettis’ head coach, took to facebook with the following statement.
“It has been a longtime in the making. The @ufc offered @showtimepettis a rematch with @cowboycerrone. Donald & Anthony have professionally reached out personally to one another & have agreed to fight each other. Both guys have given MMA some epic performances fighting all the top fighters in sport. We are just waiting on a date to dance.”Duke Roufus took to Facebook to make a statement on the future of Anthony Pettis.
