The Vikings defeating the Lions in an early NFC North showdown showdown isn't the only thing Minnesota has to cheer about. The home of the Timberwolves will play host to the UFC's fifth FX offering this coming Friday.

A heavyweight clash between the undefeated Hawaiian Travis "Hapa" Browne and Brazilian mma veteran Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva will headline this card. Also, Jake "The Juggernaut" Ellenberger and Jay Hieron will meet in a welterweight clash that was moved from the scrapped UFC 151 card that was supposed to take place on September 1st. Rounding out the main card will be Josh "The Dentist" Neer, who will look to do some work on Cincinnati's Justin Edwards after John Dodson and Jussier da Silva fight for the right to earn a shot at newly minted flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson's belt.

You can check out the full fight card as it stands today after the break.
