Benson Henderson's second title defense will come against one of the most exciting, and dangerous fighters our sport will ever see.

An all time mixed martial arts legend returns to FOX to take on a young "Mauler" that if victorious, could be tapped to take on Jon Jones in 2013.

The greatest lightweight of all time looks for revenge at 170 pounds against the second coming of Georges St. Pierre. Yes, B.J. Penn is coming out of retirement, and he is coming to FOX.

An "Immortal" will test his chin against UFC on FOX 4's KO of the night winner.

This is the UFC on FOX. Live from the KeyArena in Emerald City. It all goes down on December 8th. For ticket info and the full fight card join us after the break.
