Seattle’s KeyArena to Host UFC on Fox 5 ‘Henderson vs. Diaz’ on Dec. 8

By Mike Whitman Aug 21, 2012

Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz now know where they will do battle for the UFC lightweight title, as promotion officials announced Tuesday that UFC on Fox 5 will take place Dec. 8 at Seattle’s KeyArena.

The news was revealed during an episode of “UFC Tonight” on Fuel TV. In addition to Henderson’s headlining bout with Diaz, UFC on Fox 5 will also see Mauricio “Shogun” Rua take on Swedish prospect Alexander Gustafsson, and former two-division champion B.J. Penn lock horns with rising Canadian talent Rory MacDonald.

The UFC previously visited Seattle last year for UFC Fight Night 24, which featured a light heavyweight headliner between then-undefeated Phil Davis and Pride Fighting Championships alum Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
