It's been a banner year for the UFC. Therefore, it's only fitting that 2006 close in style with a loaded UFC 66: "Liddell vs. Ortiz 2" card on December 30.
We received a MySpace bulletin today from Forrest Griffin, confirming his light heavyweight fight with Keith Jardine that night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Here is what we've heard about the remaining lineup to date:
Hvywt.: Andrei Arlovski vs. Marcio Cruz
185 lb.: Chris Leben vs. Jason MacDonald
185 lb: Nathan Marqardt vs. Dean Lister
Hvywt.: Carmello Marrero vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
It's safe to say that this year has been good to Zuffa and Dana White. So, maybe this is their way of saying, "Merry Christmas" to all us fans.
Well, maybe not, but it is still shaping up to be an extremely exciting card. Perhaps, the UFC's most anticipated event ever.
Tickets are not on sale yet, but there is an Internet presale going on today and tomorrow only (let us know if you want the URL and password). Seats will probably not last very long, so move quick if you plan on checking it out.
