Ufc on Fox 8, back to Seattle!! July 27, 2013
The Ufc is making a trip back to Seattle, rewarding the hungry fans with a fight card 8 months after Decembers all-star card..
Look for this to be headlined by the 125 title fight (Mighty mouse is from Seattle) and I'm sure Rory will be on the main card as well,
"The date has been in place for a while, and now UFC on FOX 8 has a location.
The UFC this summer will head to Seattle for the third time when it brings a nationally televised card to KeyArena. The Seattle Times on Friday brought word of the event, citing the UFC.
UFC on FOX 8 takes place July 27 with what is expected to be a four-fight main card on FOX following prelims on FX and Facebook. No fights have yet been announced for the card.
The UFC most recently visited Seattle in December for UFC on FOX 5, which featured a main event lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson, a Washington native, and challenger Nate Diaz. Henderson dominated the fight and won by unanimous decision. Prior to that, the UFC was at KeyArena in March 2011 for a UFC "Fight Night" event.
Both of those shows were sellouts, with December's event doing a gate in excess of $1.5 million.
The UFC hosts nationally televised shows on FOX once each quarter. For the first quarter of 2013, UFC on FOX 6 took place at Chicago's United Center. Next month, UFC on FOX 7 takes place at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.
And though a location has not yet been announced, the UFC and FOX already have set aside Dec. 14 for its fourth quarter card, UFC on FOX 9.
The UFC has no shortage of fighters from the Pacific Northwest, including flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, who was supposed to headline the TUF 17 Finale next month before falling off with an injury. The timetable could be right for him to return in late July against top contender John Moraga. Johnson in January headlined the UFC on FOX 6 card with a win over John Dodson."
