A lightweight scrap between Donald Cerrone (pictured) and Evan Dunham has been added to the UFC 167 lineup.

The Las Vegas Sun first reported the tango Friday, which the UFC subsequently confirmed by retweeting the article.

Both 155-pounders will be looking to get their once-promising careers back on track.

Cerrone, who had climbed into title contention with four straight victories after transitioning from the WEC to the big leagues, has hit a bit of a rough patch. “Cowboy” most recently suffered a decision loss to Rafael dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 27, which dropped him to just to 1-2 over his past three outings.

Dunham has won only three of his last seven fights after starting out strong inside the Octagon. He too dropped a decision loss to the aforementioned dos Anjos the last time he took center stage.

The lightweight affair will likely take place in the prelims.

UFC 167 takes place November 16 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Here is the card’s current roster:

Donald Cerrone vs. Evan Dunham

Josh Koscheck vs. Tyron Woodley

Alistair Overeem vs. Frank Mir

Rory MacDonald vs. Robbie Lawler

Chael Sonnen vs. Rashad Evans

Johny Hendricks vs. Georges St-Pierre (UFC welterweight champion)
