UFC Heavyweight Cain Velasquez

Do you know the way to San Jose? The UFC will on July 26 for a UFC on FOX show.

UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez (pictured) made the announcement Thursday night while appearing as an honorary guest of the San Jose Sharks for their NHL hockey game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Velasquez also dropped the puck to kick off the game.

SAP Center (formerly known as HP Pavilion) will host the Octagon’s return to San Jose. The venue was also Strikeforce’s unofficial home.

This marks the UFC’s fourth trip to California’s third-largest city. The planet’s premier mixed martial arts promotion was there last April when then-lightweight champ Benson Henderson successfully defended his crown against Gilbert Melendez.

No bouts were announced for the lineup.
