The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Spike TV are working toward a military-themed event that would likely take place Dec. 10 -- on a U.S. military base -- as a fundraiser for the Fisher House charity.

Sources close to the event tell MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that organizers have advanced past the preliminary planning stages, though a number of obstacles remain.

Spike TV officials could neither confirm nor deny the possibility of the event when today reached for comment.

However, according to multiple sources, the event would likely feature some UFC fighters who come from a military background (and many who don't). A main event for the card has not been determined.

Well, I guess we know when former Marine Luigi Fioravanti is fighting again. The last event like this was great, and I'm looking forward to this one as well.
