Fellow Virginians rejoice with me as UFC has plans to bring the big show to our fair state in January of 2010. UFC Fight Night 20 is tentatively scheduled to invade the Commonwealth on the 11th of said month and the sweet details don’t stop there.
As for venue, you may ask? You may look forward to none other than the stellar George Mason University Patriot Center located in Fairfax. The spot is just minutes south of the Nations’ Capital and played host to the successful UWC 7 mixed martial arts event earlier this month. It is known as an excellent NCAA basketball facility and popular concert destination.
Although no official announcements have been made by the UFC for Fight Night 20, VA athletic commission officials have been contacted about holding event. Local word from unnamed GMU sources has it Patriot Center is booked and already in preparations.
While the fight card will undoubtedly begin to unfold in the coming months, two fighters already approached to compete at FN20 are new welterweight signees Mike “Joker” Guymon (11-2-1) and Rory MacDonald (9-0).
As we are local to VA/DC, 6th-Round.com will be a definitive source on details for this upcoming UFC event.
