There are five UFC events to look forward to in the final month of 2017, and now we know the location and venue for the Fight Night card that’s long been planned for December 9th.

Over the weekend, the UFC announced that they’ll be going to the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California for an FS1-televised show. It’s the first time that the UFC has ever been to the city, although that venue has previously held Strikeforce and Bellator MMA shows. Tickets go on sale October 20th, and no fights have been announced as of yet.

Fight fans will have a couple of viewing options that particular evening, as December 9th is also the date of Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux, which airs live on ESPN from the Madison Square Garden Theater.

Here’s the full UFC event schedule for December:

December 1st (Fri) - TUF 26 Finale in Las Vegas, Nevada (Fox Sports 1)
December 2nd (Sat) - UFC 218 in Detroit, Michigan (PPV)
December 9th (Sat) - UFC Fight Night in Fresno, California (Fox Sports 1)
December 16th (Sat) - UFC on FOX 26 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada (FOX)
December 30th (Sat) - UFC 219 in Las Vegas, Nevada (PPV)
