Lightweights Kurt Pellegrino and Alberto Crane will face off for the first time when they meet at UFC Fight Night on January 23 according to MMA Mania.
Pellegrino is 2-1 so far in his UFC career. He made his UFC debut at UFC 64 where he submitted Junior Assuncao with a rear naked choke. Pellegrino continued his winning ways at UFC Fight Night 9 where he submitted Nate Mohr with an achilles lock before losing an exciting unanimous decision to Joe Stevenson at UFC 74.
Crane came out on the losing end of his UFC debut this past August where he was handled by lightweight sensation Roger Huerta before stopped by “El Matador” in the third round of their fight.
