A new bout has been added to the undercard of the ninth UFC On FOX card. The first bout between Roger Bowling and Abel Trujillo ended in a controversial no contest when the ref called a knee that Trujillo landed illegal. Even the replay appeared to show that the knee landed to the face of Bowling as he attempted to stand up, but UFC President Dana White said wait till you see the ‘phantom cam’ angle. The other angle clearly showed the knee hitting the shoulder of Bowling. Both fighters said they wanted to do it again, and now they will get that shot.
UFC On FOX 9 is scheduled for December 14, 2013 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. In the main event, UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis will be putting the title on the line against Josh Thomson in a five round bout. In the co-main event, former WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber will take on Michael ‘Mayday’ McDonald.
