History will be made in February next year, as the UFC has officially confirmed their main event and co-main event for UFC 157 in Anaheim.
Despite rumors that former No. 1 light heavyweight title contender Dan Henderson's knee injury could oust him from the card, the UFC has confirmed via Twitter that he will indeed be facing former champion Lyoto Machida in UFC 157's co-main event. Tickets will be on sale starting on Dec. 21.
So far, this is the current lineup of confirmed fights for the UFC's return to Anaheim's Honda Center on Feb. 23:
• Women's Bantamweight Title: Ronda Rousey (Champion) vs. Liz Carmouche
• Light Heavyweight Title Eliminator: Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida
• Men's Bantamweight Bout: Urijah Faber vs. Ivan Menjivar
Notably, this will be Henderson's first time not headlining a card since UFC 100 in July 2009.
Genuinely looking forward to this one. I think we all know what the real main event is
