The Flying Knee MMA:
The UFC returns to network television this Saturday for the sixth installment of the UFC of FOX event series. Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson defends his flyweight belt against Ultimate Fighter Season 14 winner John “The Magician” Dodson at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois Before these two square off however, we will be treated to a co-main event lightweight battle between Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Anthony “Showtime” Pettis that will likely determine the next number one contender to Benson Henderson’s lightweight belt.

How perfect of a fight is Anthony Pettis vs. Donald Cerrone? Two in their prime fighters at the top of their game full of ability and willing to do whatever it takes to knock out another human being. It’s a beautiful thing. Throw in the fact that they’re vying for a top position in the [...]
First he was kicking eggs in slo mo and now he’s choking out balloons full of Gatorade. He must think Cowboy Cerrone’s weakness is food.

Anthony Pettis described the shoulder surgery as "minor" before he entered the operating room.
It wasn't and neither has been the wait for the lightweight to get his chance at a UFC title, a shot that Pettis could inch closer toward with a victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC on FOX 6 on Saturday.
"It turned out I had two tears in my labrum," Pettis told FOXSports...
