The UFC's third trip to Texas is nearly a done deal. The promotion is in the final stages of securing the 16,000-seat Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, for the Spike TV-televised UFC Fight Night 22. UFC has requested the venue and a September 15 date for the event, which is expected to be headlined by Alan Belcher vs. Demian Maia. The Frank Erwin Center is located on the University of Texas campus and is home to the UT men's and women's basketball teams. As with all Texas shows, though, the UFC will have to get involved in one area the state athletic commission rarely does. Due to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation's limited use of drug testing among MMA competitors (the commission can test fighters but seldom does), UFC Vice President of Regulatory and Governmental Affairs Marc Ratner will likely oversee the testing at UFC Fight Night 22.
