UFC® on FOX: HENDERSON vs. DIAZ
Where: KeyArena at Seattle Center
When: December 8, 2012
UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson of Federal Way, Washington will defend his title against the relentless Nate Diaz on Saturday, December 8 when the Ultimate Fighting Championship® brings the Octagon® back to KeyArena! Henderson is fresh off back-to-back victories over former champion Frankie Edgar and is also unbeaten since joining the UFC in 2011. Meanwhile, Diaz has reeled off three consecutive wins over Jim Miller, Donald Cerrone and Takanori Gomi.
Three other outstanding fights round out the main card. Former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua meets Alexander Gustafsson in a bout that could secure the winner a title shot, while former two-division UFC champion BJ Penn meets rising Canadian star Rory MacDonald in welterweight action. If that wasn’t enough, Mike Swick battles Matt Brown in a bout between two of the sport’s most exciting 170-pounders.
“The fans in Seattle are amazing and I love holding events there,” UFC President Dana White said. “Well on December 8, we are bringing them an absolutely stacked card!" “Not only do we have the UFC lightweight title fight between Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz, but also Shogun vs. Gustafsson, BJ Penn vs. Rory MacDonald, and Mike Swick vs. Matt Brown. This is an incredible
card for the fans in Seattle!”
