The main card is set for December's UFC on FOX 5 event, which features a championship headliner between lightweight titleholder Benson Henderson (17-2 MMA, 5-0 UFC) and challenger Nate Diaz (16-7 MMA, 11-5 UFC).

The event takes place Dec. 8 at Seattle's KeyArena, and tickets go on sale Oct. 5.

UFC on FOX 5 is the final FOX-televised event of 2012, and the main card features four fights in all.

"Not only do we have the UFC lightweight title fight between Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz, but also 'Shogun' vs. Gustafsson, B.J. Penn vs. Rory MacDonald, and Mike Swick vs. Matt Brown. This is an incredible card for the fans in Seattle."

Well his last fight didn't earn him many fans - even though he cannot be blamed for the decision The hate should go to the judges

Also he gets a lot of flak for his religious comments post-fight

I still enjoy watching him fight though, he's very exciting when pushed

The fact that the person holding the belt after this fight won't be the best LW in the world lessens its importance to me. I'm looking forward to the fight still but I just can't get hyped up in the same way I can for most other UFC title matches.

Wicked card, I think Diaz is taking a belt back to Stockton.

Rua vs Gustaf is a tough pick, I'm leaning toward the young destroyer but despite the way Shogun fights lately, he still has the skin of a tank and hits like a train. After the Vera fight he said he was disappointed and should be fitter during fights... This could be a classic.

And why isn't Siver vs Yagin on the main card?

In honor of my boy Bendo, much love to my brother in christ.

*On my knees*... Heavenly father, thank you for this amazing card. I pray that all involved have a healthy camp and come out ready and prepared to put on a good show. Please bind any injuries from this card...LET THE PEOPLE SAY...AMEN!!!!

I-ya,
I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time

MosDef " I against I"
