Cejudo, Pettis set for Dallas showdown

A stacked UFC 211 card continues to add intriguing matchups, with the latest addition to the May 13 event at American Airlines Center in Dallas being a clash between flyweight contenders Henry Cejudo and Sergio Pettis.

In the UFC 211 main event, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic defends his crown against Junior Dos Santos, and in the co-main event, Joanna Jedrzejczyk defends her strawweight title against Jessica Andrade.

Currently ranked second at 125 pounds, 2008 Olympic gold medalist Cejudo is a former world title challenger who is coming off an exciting December battle with Joseph Benavidez and is eager to get a second shot at the belt. But first, he has to get by Milwaukee’s Pettis, the No. 5-ranked contender who has won three in a row, most recently defeating John Moraga in January.
