After Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier’s exits from UFC 178, the card continues to pick up the pieces. On Thursday, it was announced a lightweight shootout between Donald Cerrone (pictured) and Bobby Green will co-headline the September 27 show.

Cerrone has once again emerged as one of the hottest lightweights in the game. He’s finished off all four of his last opponents in devastating fashion, all since this past November. “Cowboy” most recently posted a highlight reel head kick KO on Jim Miller in July.

Green will be riding an eight-fight winning streak into the tango, with half of those wins coming inside the octagon. “King” took a split decision over Josh Thomson just last month at UFC on FOX 12.

Flyweight king Demetrious Johnson defends his throne against Chris Cariaso in the night’s featured attraction.

MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the festivities.

Here is the event’s revised roster:

Kevin Lee vs. Jon Tuck

Brian Ebersole vs. John Howard

Jorge Masvidal vs. James Krause

Patrick Cote vs. Stephen Thompson

Cat Zingano vs. Amanda Nunes

Jorge Masvidal vs. James Krause

Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier

Tim Kennedy vs. Yoel Romero

Dominick Cruz vs. Takeya Mizugaki

Donald Cerrone vs. Bobby Green

Chris Cariaso vs. Demetrious Johnson (UFC flyweight champion champion)
