Donald-Cerrone

A lightweight fight has been added to this May’s UFC 160 as Donald Cerrone welcomes K.J. Noons to the UFC.

Looking to bounce back from a crushing defeat to Anthony Pettis last month, Donald Cerrone (19-5-0-1NC) will be keen to put the memory of that defeat behind him in impressive fashion. One of the most exciting and most active fighters at 155lbs in the UFC, Cerrone always comes to fight and is dangerous at all times in a fight. He has superb striking, slick grappling and fight ending power in his blows.

Despite coming into the UFC as a debutant, K.J. Noons (11-6-0) enters the world’s largest stage likely in a must win situation. He comes to the Ultimate Fighting Championship as a Strikeforce importee but comes to the most stacked division in the promotion having won just one of his last five fights. His last win came back in 2011 when he defeated Billy Evangelista by decision. Noons is a former professional boxer so is a real threat on the feet in this fight.

UFC 160 takes place 25th May from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and is set to be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between Cain Velasquez and Big Foot Silva.
