UFC Planning Return To Anaheim In February

A source close to the UFC has informed MMAjunkie.com that the promotion is planning a February return to Anaheim, California.

The card would be UFC 157, and would take place February 23 from the Honda Center.

Anaheim has been the site of two UFC heavyweight title matches over the past couple of years. Last November, Junior dos Santos won the belt in the first Fox card, knocking out Cain Velasquez.

Velasquez won the belt from Brock Lesnar the previous year, also at the Honda Center.

UFC 157 would be the second PPV of the month for the UFC, following UFC 156, which goes down February 2 from Las Vegas.
