Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and Nate Diaz have not only agreed to meet at UFC 141, but they will garner co-main event status.

UFC officials confirmed the bout on Monday and stated that it will be the co-main event on the card headlined by former champion Brock Lesnar taking on Alistair Overeem.

Cerrone steps right back into action after dominating Dennis Siver over the weekend at UFC 137, while Diaz returns after a submission win over former Pride champion Takanori Gomi.
