UFC Heads to Albuquerque in June

The Ultimate Fighting Championship heads to Albuquerque in June for Fight Night. 
June 7 is the date for the UFC's first visit to Albuquerque, New Mexico, as former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson returns to action at the Tingley Coliseum against rising star Rustam Khabilov.

Fresh off a January win over Josh Thomson, Henderson hopes that a win over Khabilov (who has won six straight, including three bouts in the UFC) will put him back in line for a shot at regaining his title.

Also added to the card is a surefire welterweight action fight, as Lance Benoist battles "Vicious" Bobby Voelker.

Tickets for this UFC Fight Night card go on sale on April 18. Stay tuned to UFC.com for more information.
