Although no announcement has been made and there's no official date yet, UFC could be headed to the Washington, DC area in January. Reports are the promotion is targeting January 11 for UFC Fight Night 20, with the Patriot Center in Fairfax a possible host site. The arena has a seating capacity of 11,000. The first fight for the card could be Rory MacDonald vs. Mike Guymon.

I'd certainly try to go if this is true as I'm only about an hour away although the date is unusual-normally UFNs are on Wednesdays or Saturdays. January 11 is a Monday.

For that time of year, my best guess is college basketball. The Patriot Center is the home of "Mason Nation", it hosts George Mason men's & women's basketball. And 11,000 might be a generous estimate for crowds, I went last year for an MMA event and, at first glance, I think 7,000 is a better estimate.
