UFC has finished up its 2013 fight card schedule with a FOX show in Sacramento.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently announced the locale for its latest and greatest FOX card following an already eventful 2013. The lucky city is Sacramento, California, and UFC on FOX 9 will take place in the recently-renamed Sleep Train Arena (previously Arco Arena) on Sat., Dec. 14, 2013.

Sacramento Bee announced the news on Wednesday.

Northern California is a hub of mixed martial arts (MMA) talent and while no fights are currently official for the upcoming card, a plethora of hometown fighters are available. Namely, Urijah Faber, who has been a staple of "Golden State" competition dating back to the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) days.

UFC hasn't held a show in Sacramento since July 2007, when UFC 73 featured a championship bout between then-middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva taking on Nate Marquardt, while Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans battled to a light heavyweight draw.
