The UFC have announced the full fight card for the UFN 20 event which takes place on January 11th in Fairfax, Virginia.
The main event of the evening will be Gray Maynard Vs Nate Diaz, a rematch of a fight from the fighters time in The Ultimate Fighter Season 5 which Diaz eventually went on to win.
Times have changed though, and while Diaz is still a tough competitor in the division, Maynard is the one who could be next in line for a lightweight title shot with a win in this bout.
The card will also see the return of Efrain Escudero, who impressed in his last fight against Cole Miller, and will be looking to extend his unbeaten career record to 13-0 against Evan Dunham who also has an unblemished record of 9-0.
After banking $100,000 for his ‘Submission Of The Night’ award at the historic UFC 100 event, Tom Lawlor is also back in action, taking on accomplished wrestler Aaron Simpson who has stood-out in his recent visits to the octagon.
Rounding off the main card is Amir Sadollah, who used veteran fighter Phil Baroni as a human punching bag at UFC 106, and will now look to further establish himself against Brad Blackburn who is on a three fight win-streak since joining the promotion.
A notable absentee from the main card is Chris Leben, who, for the time being at least, is marked down as featuring in the undercard for his bout with Jay Silva.
