Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will begin its push for the upcoming UFC on FOX 9 mixed martial arts (MMA) fight card, which is set to go down inside the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California, on Dec. 14, 2013.
"Pettis vs. Thomson" will be headlined by a 155-pound title fight pitting reigning UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis against former Strikeforce division titleholder Josh Thomson, in a five-round championship main event.
That's not all
The co-main event will feature former WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber in his quest to get back into the 135-pound title hunt at the expense of fellow bantamweight stalwart Michael McDonald. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, Matt Brown will try to prove he's immortal against welterweight warrior Carlos Condit.
But don't take my word for it.
The cast and crew of UFC on FOX 9, including UFC President Dana White, Pettis, Thomson, Faber, McDonald, Condit, Brown, Chad Mendes and Nik Lentz, will storm the Sleep Train Arena to field questions from fans and media TODAY (Oct. 3, 2013) at 4 p.m. ET right here on MMAmania.com using the video player below.
