UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Khabilov fight card shaping up

USA TODAY Sports

A look at the June 7th UFC Fight Night on Fox Sports 1, which pits Ben Henderson against rising lightweight threat Rustam Khabilov in the main event.

Remember that one time the UFC held a live show in New Mexico? You do? Then you're lying. This June marks the promotion's first ever trip to the state, and they'll be in Albuquerque for a Fight Night card featuring Ben Henderson and Rustam Khabilov in the main event. Henderson is coming off of a controversial decision win over Josh Thomson, while Khabilov won a thrilling (but close) decision over Jorge Masvidal.

There's no word on the official co-main event, although I'm thinking it's Francimar Barroso/Patrick Cummins. Albuquerque is home to Greg Jackson's camp, so it's no surprise to see many of his fighters on this card, including Diego Sanchez, John Dodson, and Khabilov.

It's early, but the card looks about halfway filled, so let's take a look at who's competing on the Fox Sports 1 televised show:

Ben Henderson vs. Rustam Khabilov
Diego Sanchez vs. Ross Pearson
John Dodson vs. John Moraga
Bobby Voelker vs. Lance Benoist
Sergio Pettis vs. Yaotzin Meza
Yves Edwards vs. Piotr Hallman
Patrick Cummins vs. Francimar Barroso
