The Octagon’s fifth primetime show comes with arguably the most aesthetically appealing FOX billboard to date. It’s fitting because a card this star-studded needs a spectacular poster to keep pace.
“UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Diaz” takes place December 8th inside Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.
Lightweight champ Benson Henderson defends his crown against Nate Diaz in the show’s featured attraction.
Former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, who just starred in the UFC’s most recent show on FOX, meets up-and-comer Alexander Gustafsson in the night’s co-main event.
BJ Penn will make his anticipated return to action against Rory MacDonald in the card’s third-to-last contest. Welterweights Mike Swick and Matt Brown round out the main card.
FOX broadcasts the four featured fights live beginning at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
