A look at the UFC's 7th FOX card, this one is scheduled for San Jose, CA on April 20th, and features a heavy UFC vs. Strikeforce theme. The main event is the lightweight title fight between UFC champion Ben Henderson and Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez.
The UFC is stocking up on title fights on FOX, and that's frankly fantastic. This main event once again features UFC lightweight champion Ben Henderson. and this time he is fighting Strikeforce LW champion Gilbert Melendez. It's one of several UFC vs. Strikeforce fights prevalent throughout the card, including the night's co-main event of Daniel Cormier against Frank Mir.
Lest we forget the rest of this stacked card, which has high potential for fireworks. My personal favorite is Anthony Njokuani vs. Roger Bowling, but Tim Means vs. Jorge Masvidal also has early FOTN candidacy written all over it. Presumably these fights will air on the FX prelims broadcast, but the bout order has not been finalized beyond the main and co-main events.
Here's how the fight card looks right now, and once again note that the bout order is not yet finalized.
