After losing Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier, UFC 178 has received a compelling lightweight fight, as Donald Cerrone will take on Bobby Green. The 155 pound fight will be the September 27th card’s co-headliner, as Demetrious Johnson versus Chris Cariaso is the new main event.
Cerrone (24-6) is coming off a stoppage win over Jim Miller in July to run his winning streak to four. The veteran is currently ranked #4 in the UFC’s lightweight division.
Green (23-5) scored a split decision win over Josh Thomson in his last outing, which took place at UFC on FOX 12 in July. Green has won eight straight fights and is ranked #7.
In addition, the UFC has announced that Jorge Masvidal (27-8) will fight lightweight James Krause (21-5) on September 27th. Masvidal was originally booked to fight Green at the event.
UFC 178 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
