Anthony Pettis and Josh Thomson headlines the highly stacked UFC on Fox 9 this coming December 14

UFC fox 9 is already taking shape 2 months prior to its schedule. The event will be headlined with the UFC lightweight title fight between current champion Anthony Pettis and Josh Thomson.

It will be Pettis’ first defense of the title that he took from Benson Henderson by submitting him in the first round. Thomson on the other hand has won his last fight via 1st round TKO over Nate Diaz, whom has not been stopped prior to his bout with Thomson.

The main card will also feature former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit against Matt Brown as well as a fight between high ranking bantamweights in Urijah Faber and Michael McDonald.

The most recent addition to the highly stacked card is a flyweight scrap between one time flyweight contender John Moraga and Darren Uyenoyama. Both fighters have lost their most recent outings. Moraga suffered a fifth round submission loss in his bid to take the title away from Demetrious Johnson. Meanwhile, Uyenoyama was stopped in the 2nd round by Joseph Buenavidez at UFC on Fox 7 last April.
