, while UFC 132
will feature surging Melvin Guillard
against Shane Roller
. The verbal agreements were announced on UFC.com
Cerrone (14-3, 1 no decision) recently captured his UFC debut with a submission win over Paul Kelly after moving over from the merged WEC. Prior to that, he tapped out Chris Horodecki and won a decision over former WEC champ Jamie Varner.
Danzig, meanwhile, is coming off a surprising first-round knockout win over Joe Stevenson at last December's UFC 124. Danzig (20-8-1) is a winner of two his last three bouts.
UFC 131 will emanate from Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada on June 11 and feature a heavyweight main event pitting Brock Lesnar against Junior dos Santos.
UFC 132, meanwhile, has not yet officially been announced by the promotion, but is expected to take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on July 2.
The dynamic Guillard (27-8-2, 1 no contest) has proven himself to be one of the division's most improved fighters, winning all four of his fights since the start of 2010 as he tries to work his way into contender status. In January, he knocked out the highly regarded Evan Dunham in the first round to capture his fourth straight.
His opponent, Roller, is a former collegiate wrestling All-American who has won five of his last six fights, losing only to top UFC contender Anthony Pettis during that time. He has back to back wins over Jamie Varner and Thiago Tavares, the latter coming in his UFC debut.
In addition, the UFC announced that Matt Brown
vs. Rich Attonito
has been added to the Ultimate Fighter 13 FInale.
