The UFC has revealed in a press release earlier today that tickets for the upcoming UFC on FOX 7 card will go on sale to the general public on February 15th. The card is headlined by a lightweight battle between Benson Henderson and former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez. The main card will also feature a heavyweight showdown between Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir and a welterweight match-up between Dan Hardy and Matt Brown.
The 29-year-old Henderson is 6-0 in the UFC, including two consecutive title defenses over Nate Diaz and Frankie Edgar. He’ll look to cement his status as the world’s best 155-pounder when he meets Melendez on April 20th in San Jose.
“Benson Henderson wants to beat Gilbert Melendez to prove once and for all that he’s the best lightweight in the world,” UFC President Dana White said. “Gilbert was a champion in Strikeforce and he’s been on an incredible tear. Benson wants this fight badly and I’m excited that it’s headlining such a stacked card.”
