Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently put the finishing touches on its return trip to the "The Sooner State," which is scheduled for Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, Okla., on Saturday, Sept. 16.
UFC Fight Night 19: "Diaz vs. Guillard" will feature a main event between hungry lightweight up-and-comers and former TUF grads Nate Diaz and Melvin "The Young Assassin" Guillard.
In addition, Roger "El Matador" Huerta will throwdown for perhaps the last time inside the Octagon as he tries to leave on a high note against the stifling super-wrestler Gray "The Bully" Maynard.
Remember that UFC Fight Night 19 will serve as the lead-in for the upcoming tenth season of TUF, which features Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson and a solid collection of 15 other heavyweight fighters competing in a tournament-style format to earn one "six-figure contract."
