UFC Poster Fox 9 Johnson Benavidez

It wasn’t the title bout fans were anticipating, hence the need for a new event poster, but there will be hardware on the line at UFC on FOX 9, nonetheless.

With lightweight champion Anthony Pettis withdrawing from the December 14 event to undergo knee surgery, a flyweight fight between champ Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez now steps in as the show’s featured attraction.

A pivotal bantamweight bout with Urijah Faber and Michael McDonald serves as the co-main event.

Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California hosts the festivities. FOX will broadcast the main card live starting at 8PM ET/5PM PT.

Here is the card’s current roster:

Darren Uyenoyama vs. John Moraga

Cody McKenzie vs. Sam Stout

Roger Bowling vs. Abel Truji

Pat Healy vs. Bobby Green

Court McGee vs. Ryan LaFlare

Mac Danzig vs. Joe Lauzon

Danny Castillo vs. Edson Barboza
