A flyweight showdown pitting Henry Cejudo against Sergio Pettis has been added to the UFC 211 lineup.

The promotion announced the pairing on Tuesday night. UFC 211 takes place at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas on May 13 and is headlined by a heavyweight championship bout between Stipe Miocic and Junior dos Santos.

Cejudo is coming off back-to-back losses to two-time title challenger Joseph Benavidez and reigning 125-pound king Demetrious Johnson. Prior to that, the Olympic gold medalist had won his first 10 professional bouts, including four in UFC competition.

Pettis, meanwhile, enters the matchup on a three-fight winning streak. The 23-year-old has earned a trio of decisions over John Moraga, Chris Kelades and Chris Cariaso in his last three outings to raise his promotional mark to 6-2.
