Kurt Pellegrino and Fabricio Camoes have agreed to a lightweight bout for UFC 111. The event takes place March 27 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.
MMAWeekly.com on Thursday afternoon independently confirmed the bout, initially reported by AOL’s Ariel Helwani.
Pellegrino (14-4) enters the bout on a three-fight winning streak. His last action in the Octagon was a victory over Josh Neer at UFC 101 in August of last year.
Camoes (10-4-1) recently broke a seven-bout winning streak. He fought to a majority draw in his UFC debut against Caol Uno at UFC 106 in November.
UFC 111 is scheduled to feature two title bouts. Georges St-Pierre will defend his welterweight strap against Dan Hardy, and Frank Mir and Shane Carwin will battle it out for the UFC interim heavyweight title while current champion Brock Lesnar sits on the sidelines.
