UFC Donald Cerrone

The hotly rumored lightweight affair between Donald Cerrone (pictured) and Myles Jury has become reality.

UFC president Dana White announced the tango Wednesday via Twitter. There were reports the 155-pound affair was headed to the UFC’s Boston card, but it appears White had a change of heart.

The January 3 event goes down inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Cerrone is one of the division’s hottest fighters having won five straight scraps. He posted a unanimous decision victory over Eddie Alvarez in September.

Jury owns a perfect 15-0 professional record, with his last six coming inside the octagon. While he holds UFC victories over Michael Johnson, Diego Sanchez and most recently Takanori Gomi, Cerrone will be the 25-year-old’s biggest test to date.

Here is the show’s current lineup:

Louis Gaudinot vs. Kyoji Horiguchi

Omari Akhmedov vs. Mats Nilsson

Nate Marquardt vs. Brad Tavares

Danny Castillo vs. Rustam Khabilov

Josh Burkman vs. Hector Lombard

Donald Cerrone vs. Myles Jury

Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones (UFC light heavyweight champion)
