No rest for the weary.
Word of the bout announcement came from hometown newspaper The Las Vegas Sun.
Strangely enough, both Cerrone and Dunham are coming off decision losses to Rafael dos Anjos.
Cerrone (20-6, 1 NC), has hit a rough patch as of late, losing two of his last three bouts. Before that, he had more than earned a top 10 ranking in the lightweight division after winning six of his first seven UFC fights. "Cowboy" will be looking to get back on track with a victory against a very tough opponent in Dunham
Dunham (14-4) has also lost two straight, dropping a close decision to dos Anjos and coming up short in a "Fight of the Night"-winning effort against T.J. Grant sandwiched between a close split decision over perennial mid-carder Gleison Tibau. Many felt he should have won the decision against dos Anjos, so he can really put himself on the map if he can handle the Greg Jackson-trained fighter this November.
UFC 167 takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and will be headlined by a UFC welterweight title fight between Georges St. Pierre and Johny Hendricks. A light heavyweight scrap featuring Rashad Evans and Chael Sonnen is also on tap. For the latest rumors on the upcoming event, click here.
