The UFC is hoping to get some heavyweights on the next UFC On FOX card. The UFC is targeting a bout between Stipe Miocic and Travis Browne for the card targeted for mid December. Miocic is coming off a win over Roy Nelson at UFC 161 and Browne is coming off of a huge win over Alistair Overeem. The UFC made the announcement on UFC Tonight.
The UFC announced UFC On FOX 9 for December 14, 2013 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. While the only confirmed fight is a co-main event bantamweight bout between former WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber and Michael ‘Mayday’ McDonald, the UFC is hoping TJ Grant will be ready to take on current lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. Grant is recovering from a concussion he suffered that prevented him from fighting Benson Henderson at UFC 164.
