UFC Books Anthony Pettis vs. Edson Barboza
By FCF Staff
Pettis (18-4) will be looking to get back on track, as the former champ has dropped consecutive bouts to Rafael dos Anjos and most recently Eddie Alvarez.
Barboza (16-4), meanwhile, was submitted by Tony Ferguson in his last bout, which followed a win over Paul Felder.
Pettis is currently ranked #3 at 155, and Barboza is sitting in the #8 spot.
UFC 197 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena, and will feature a rematch between light-heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones in the headliner.
