Tickets for UFC on FOX 7: Henderson vs Melendez Go On Sale Next Week
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.07.2013

MMA Junkie reports that tickets for UFC on FOX 7 go on sale next week. The show will feature a lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson (18-2 MMA, 6-0 UFC) and challenger Gilbert Melendez (21-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC). It takes place on April 20 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The main card airs on FOX after preliminary fights on FX.

UFC President Dana White said: "Benson Henderson wants to beat Gilbert Melendez to prove once and for all that he's the best lightweight in the world. Gilbert was a champion in Strikeforce, and he's been on an incredible tear. Benson wants this fight badly, and I'm excited that it's headlining such a stacked card."

Tickets go on sale February 15 at 1 PM ET (10 AM PT local time). UFC Fight Club members can buy tickets at 1 PM ET on February 13, and UFC.com e-newsletter subscribers can buy them on February 14 at 1 PM ET. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com and range from $50 to $250.

Henderson currently has a 6-0 record in the UFC, with all six wins by decision. He won the belt in 2012 over Frankie Edgar, then defeated Edgar in a rematch. In December at UFC on FOX 5, he beat Nate Diaz. Meanwhile, Melendez is on a seven-fight win streak. He was set to fight Pat Healy at Strikeforce's final show, but was forced off the card with a shoulder injury. He has wins over names like Shinya Aoki, Tatsuya Kawajiri, Jorge Masvidal and Josh Thomson.

The card also includes Daniel Cormier (11-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) vs Frank Mir (16-6 MMA, 14-6 UFC), Nate Diaz (16-8 MMA, 7-6 UFC) vs. Josh Thomson (19-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) and Matt Brown (16-11 MMA, 6-5 UFC) vs. Dan Hardy (25-10 MMA, 6-4 UFC).
