Pettis vs. Barboza On for April 23

Two of the best strikers in mixed martial arts will square off at UFC 197 on April 23, as former lightweight champion Anthony "Showtime" Pettis takes on Edson Barboza in a surefire Fight of the Night candidate at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

UFC 197 is headlined by the light heavyweight championship rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones and the flyweight title fight pitting Demetrious Johnson against Henry Cejudo.

Seeking a return to the win column after losses to Rafael Dos Anjos and Eddie Alvarez, Milwaukee's Pettis gets the striking matchup he's wanted against Muay Thai master Barboza, who has logged back-to-back Fight of the Night bonuses in bouts against Paul Felder and Tony Ferguson.
