A huge flyweight division attraction has been added to the upcoming UFC 211 card as #2 Henry Cejudo will be in action against #5 Sergio Pettis.
Cejudo (10-2-0) will be entering the fight on a two fight losing streak, with those losses coming to UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez. Cejudo will be fighting on a pay-per-view card for the first time in nearly two years and his last UFC PPV appearance was at UFC 188. Cejudo started off his professional MMA career with a ten fight undefeated streak, with four of those wins coming in the UFC.
Pettis (15-2-0) will be coming into the fight on a three fight winning streak, defeating Chris Cariaso, Chris Kelades and John Moraga. Pettis is the younger brother of former UFC Lightweight Champion and UFC Interim Featherweight Title challenger Anthony Pettis. Pettis has only suffered two defeats as a pro, which came to Alex Caceres and Ryan Benoit.
UFC 211 takes place on Saturday, May 13 from the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas with Stipe Miocic and Junior Dos Santos headlining. Fightful will be providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
