UFC Fight Night 19 confirmed for Oklahoma City on September 16

UFC Fight Night 19, which will serve as the lead-in for the upcoming tenth season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10, will be held at the Cox Convention Center on September 16, according to Tulsa World.

The promotion last visited "The Sooner State" way back in December of 1994 with UFC 4 from the Expo Square Pavilion in Tulsa. Royce Gracie cruised to victory that night in "Revenge of the Warriors."

Mixed martial arts has come a long way in 15 years.

The Cox Convention Center has a capacity of 15,000 and will join Colorado, Nebraska, Florida and Tennessee as recent additions for the "Fight Night" series.

UFC President Dana White had gone on record as early as July of 2008 with his intentions of traveling to Oklahoma City. Now with a slam-bang season of TUF to follow (thanks largely in part to his acquisition of former Elite XC headliner Kimbo Slice), Fight Night 19 is sure to get some major exposure.

As of now, newly signed heavyweight Mike Russow and Ronnys Torres are the only names tentatively attached to the card.
