UFC Looking To San Jose For Seventh Fox Card

It appears the UFC is looking into San Jose for an upcoming Fox card, as MMAjunkie.com is reporting UFC on Fox 7 will go down from the HP Pavilion.

The event is scheduled for April 20, as the 2013 Fox cards have already been scheduled.

Strikeforce called San Jose home for 15 events, and a number of fighters from the promotion could be in store to fight on the UFC card.

One potential rumored fight would pit Daniel Cormier, who trains at nearby American Kickboxing Academy, against Frank Mir. Cormier is signed to the UFC, though he will fight in Strikeforce later this month.

Cormier and Mir were booked for 2012, but an injury to Mir called off the contest.

Also, Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez, Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold and Josh Thomson all call the Bay Area home.
