Joe Lauzon vs. Anthony Pettis Agreed for UFC 143 on Super Bowl Weekend

A matchup between rising lightweights is in the works for Super Bowl weekend, as Joe Lauzon and Anthony Pettis have verbally agreed to square off at UFC 143 on February 3 in Las Vegas, according to MMAWeekly.

The news comes a couple weeks after Lauzon and Pettis said they wanted the matchup following their respective wins last month at UFC 136.

Lauzon (21-6) stunned Melvin Guillard with a 47-second submission of one of the division’s top contenders, while the former WEC champ Pettis (12-2) rebounded from a debut loss to Clay Guida with a decision win over Jeremy Stephens.

UFC 143 is expected to be headlined by welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz and will also include welterweight contender Carlos Condit vs. Josh Koscheck.
