Ufc on Fox 7 - San Jose - 4/20

Gilbert Melendez come on down!!!....

Looks as though the Ufc is going back to San Jose for Ufc on Fox. Ufc 139 was star-studded, and they are use to Strikeforce events there.

Melendez vs Bendo for LW is a sure-in..

I know Shields, Rockhold, Nate Diaz, and anyone else from AKA or Team Ceasar Gracie will be jumping at a chance to get on this card (remember only 4 fights are on a Fox TV broadcast).

It's too bad Weidman isn't expected back until June/July,

"A UFC on FOX event planned for April 20 now has a city and venue.

Multiple sources close to the event on Wednesday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., is targeted to host the event, which is expected to be UFC on FOX 7.

As of yet, no matchups are confirmed for the fight card.

The UFC's most recent trip to San Jose came this past July with UFC on FUEL TV 4, which featured a middleweight headliner between Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman. The event drew a reported 4,250 fans for a live gate of $163,485 and drew a peak of 291,000 viewers on FUEL TV.

San Jose also is the longtime home of soon-to-expire Strikeforce, which held 15 MMA events at the venue.

Several of Strikeforce's breakout stars, including lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez, middleweight champ Luke Rockhold, heavyweight grand prix champ Daniel Cormier and ex-lightweight champ Josh Thomson, all reside in the Bay Area. All are expected to migrate to the UFC following the promotion's final event, which takes place Jan. 12 at Chesapeake Energy Center in Oklahoma City.

In November, the UFC announced its 2013 FOX event schedule, which begins with UFC on FOX 6 on Jan. 26 in Chicago. Along with the April 20 date for UFC on FOX 7, July 27 is the targeted date for UFC on FOX 8 and Dec. 14 is planned for UFC on FOX 9.

For the latest on UFC on FOX 7, stayed tuned to the UFC Rumors section of the site."

I can pretty much assure you a Diaz brother won't be on there.
