Similar to UFC Fight Night from Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in Miramar, Calif., on December 12, 2006, the event will be free for military personnel to attend and likely feature a fight card that is littered with veterans of the armed services who now compete in mixed martial arts.

It's going to be a busy month and an even busier week for the promotion -- The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 8 Finale is scheduled for December 13 and UFC 92 is set to go off just two weeks later on December 27.

Talk about ending 2008 with a bang (no pun intended).

This will mark the first time the promotion has staged an event in North Carolina since the early (and dark) days of its existence. UFC 3: "The American Dream" took place way back on September 9, 1994, and UFC 5: "The Return of the Beast" was held shortly thereafter on April 7, 1995.

Both events took place in Charlotte.

Fort Bragg is known as the "Home of the Airborne and Special Operations Forces," according to the official Web site. It also the home for the XVIII Airborne Corps and the 82nd Airborne Division. The US Army Special Operations Command and the US Army Parachute Team (the Golden Knights) also call Fort Bragg home.

Stay tuned for more updates regarding the Fort Bragg event and its forthcoming line up ... we hear good things. Get ready, Tar Heels.
