The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s 20th anniversary event continues to fill out, as promotion officials revealed Friday that Donald Cerrone will face Evan Dunham at the Nov. 16 show.
The lightweight clash joins a UFC 167 bill topped by a welterweight title headliner between Georges St. Pierre and Johny Hendricks. The pay-per-view event takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and will also see Rashad Evans square off with Chael Sonnen in a light heavyweight co-main event.
Cerrone, 30, has alternated wins and losses in his last four fights, going 1-2 thus far in 2013. “Cowboy” kicked off the year with first-round knockout loss to future lightweight champion Anthony Pettis but rebounded with a dominant victory over Strikeforce vet K.J. Noons. Cerrone saw his momentum halted in his most recent outing, however, falling in a unanimous decision to Rafael dos Anjos last month at UFC Fight Night 27.
Dunham also stumbled against dos Anjos in his last in-cage appearance, dropping a hard-fought and controversial unanimous decision to the Brazilian this past May at UFC on FX 8. Prior to that contentious result, Dunham earned a split verdict over Gleison Tibau at February’s UFC 156.
