For the first time in 15 years, the Ultimate Fighting Championship is on its way back to Oklahoma. Not since UFC 4 saw the legendary Royce Gracie defeat fellow Hall of Famer Dan Severn in 1994 has the world’s greatest mixed martial arts organization put on a show in the Sooner State. Headlining this event at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City will be a lightweight doubleheader that is guaranteed to shake up the 155-pound weight class. In the main event, The Ultimate Fighter season five winner Nate Diaz will square off against Louisiana knockout artist Melvin Guillard, while the highly-anticipated co-feature sees the return of Roger “El Matador” Huerta against unbeaten contender Gray “The Bully” Maynard. See the action LIVE on SPIKE TV at 7pm CT / 8pm ET and PT.

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
