Countdown to UFC 141: Nate Diaz vs. Donald CerronePosted on December 27, 2011, 02:26 PM by Joey Santosus
Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem will headline the stacked UFC 141 fight card set to take place this Friday night from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. But, before the giants go to war, two Lightweight scrappers will go head to head in the co-main event.
In what will be his 5th fight this year, WEC transplant, Donald Cerrone (17-3), will look to remain perfect inside the octagon when he meets an equally game Nate Diaz on Friday. Diaz (14-7) made the cut to 155-pounds after being out-wrestled by a noticeably larger Rory MacDonald in April, and has since bounced back with a dominant win over Takanori Gomi at UFC 135. With each competitor's sights set firmly on UFC gold, their paths to a title shot will cross this weekend in Vegas.
