The UFC announced UFC On FOX 9 for December 14, 2013 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California, but up until now there were no confirmed fights for the card. Earlier today, The UFC announced that the co main event for the card will be a Bantamweight bout between former WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber and Michael ‘Mayday’ McDonald.
Later in the day on UFC Tonight, UFC President Dana White said that they are targeting the event to be headlined by a title fight between current Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis and current number one contender T.J. Grant. Of course, this all hinges on whether or not Grant will be able to come back in time for the bout.
