(This story appeared in Wednesday's edition of USA TODAY.)

Ultimate Fighting Championship's lightweight title will be defended on network television.

USA TODAY Sports and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) confirmed with UFC officials that current lightweight champion Benson Henderson (17-2 MMA, 5-0 UFC) will face Nate Diaz (16-7, 11-5) at UFC on FOX 5, which takes place Dec. 8 at a host site to be announced.

A light-heavyweight matchup between former champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (21-6, 5-4) and Alexander Gustafsson (14-1, 6-1) serves as the night's co-feature, and a B.J. Penn (16-8-2, 12-7-2) vs. Rory MacDonald (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) fight also has been rebooked for the card.

A fourth main-card fight is expected to be added to the FOX broadcast in the coming weeks.

It sounds so good, but who really believes we will get all three of those fights on the card come fight day. Injuries will fuck this up. Rua will duck Gustafsson

I take back what I said about Bendo/Diaz not being on free tv

Haha, just going to say something similar. I was going to say how many of these fights are going to stay on the card.

I wasn't expecting Gustafsson-Rua, though. Thought they might try to keep Gus as a title contender potentially along with Rua, with separate matchups.

This is awesome.

The fourth fight could be a midget vs. a bear and it would still be the best-looking card all year.

wow ! awesome 3 fights there.

I'd be very interested in the midget vs. bear.

McCall vs Sylvia

midget vs bear

I also hope Rua does better against Gus than he did against Vera....thats two tall strikers in a row for him and Gus imo is better than Vera is right now.
