The upcoming UFC Fight Night 10 special, which is scheduled for June 12, will take place in Florida, according to a reliable UFCmania source.
Up until this time the location has been undetermined.
I was unable to confirm the venue 100 percent, but all indications point to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
That's the same spot where UFC Fight Night 8 took place earlier this year, as well Ortiz vs. Shamrock 3: "The Final Chapter" in October 2006.
In addition, the welterweight showdown between Jon Fitch and Roan Carneiro -- which we reported yesterday as happening at the The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 Finale -- will take place in the Sunshine State.
It's also rumored that Spencer Fisher will rematch Sam Stout that same evening.
As a big Fitch fan -- as well as a Florida resident -- this is some great news for yours truly.
The Hard Rock is also a great place to see a UFC show -- the January event was packed and the crowd was electric.
Perhaps that's the reason the UFC decided to return so soon.
