Both men are coming off wins, with Pellegrino most recently defeating Thiago Tavares by decision at UFC 88, and Emerson scoring a 12-second knockout of Manny Gamburyan at UFC 87. Emerson has gone 6-0 with one no-contest in his last seven fights — not bad for a guy who started his MMA career with a 2-6 record.
— Another lightweight match between Gleison Tibau and Rich Clementi has been confirmed, and may go down at either UFN 17 or UFC 95 (February 21st; London, England). It’s a must-win for Tibau, who has lost back-to-back matches against Tyson Griffin and Joe Stevenson. Clementi, is coming off a decision loss via smothering against Gray Maynard at UFC 90, which snapped a six-fight win streak.
