TICKETS FOR UFC® on FOX: HENDERSON vs. DIAZ ON SALE FRIDAY, OCT. 5
UFC® lightweight champion Benson Henderson of Federal Way, Wash. will defend his title against the relentless Nate Diaz on Saturday, Dec. 8 when the Ultimate Fighting Championship® brings the Octagon® back to KeyArena in Seattle, Wash.

Henderson is fresh off back-to-back victories over former champion Frankie Edgar and is also unbeaten since joining the UFC in 2011. Meanwhile, Diaz has reeled off three consecutive wins over Jim Miller, Donald Cerrone and Takanori Gomi.

Three other outstanding fights round out the main card. Former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua meets Alexander Gustafsson in a bout that could secure the winner a title shot, while former two-division UFC champion BJ Penn meets rising Canadian star Rory MacDonald in welterweight action. If that wasn’t enough, Mike Swick battles Matt Brown in a bout between two of the sport’s most exciting 170-pounders.

All of the main card action airs live on FOX at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
