December 14, is just around the corner and with it UFC on FOX 9: Johnson vs. Benavidez 2, as broadcast live from the Sleep Train Arena, in Sacramento, California.

The card is a very important one and will make a number of statements in the flyweight, bantamweight and welterweight divisions.

At the top of its card, Demetrious Johnson will defend his flyweight title as against number on ranked, Joseph Benavidez. This will mark the second time the pair has met and Benavidez will be looking to improve upon his split September 2012 (UFC 152) loss to "Mighty Mouse".

In the co-main slot, Urijah Faber take on Michael McDonald and in a match that may well determine the next bantamweight contender, and who gets the winner of Dominick Cruz and Renan Barao.

Of course and regardless of the other main and co-main matches, the fight that many fans are looking forward to seeing is that of Carlos Condit Matt Brown. This is a huge fight in the welterweight division and the winner of this match is apt to get either the next title shot or be paired up with Robbie Lawler, in a duke’em out war for the number one contenders spot.  

All in all, it looks like a great card and in advance of it, FOX Sports 1 will be broadcasting its “Road To The Octagon” show tonight; check your local listings for times.

Here’s the promo for tonight’s show.

    I look forward to seeing the card, but for me, the fight I really care about is Condit / Brown. I've been looking forward to that since it was announce. It should be a great fight and it'll tell us if Brown is for real. If he takes out CC, wow.

    Idk man, this card is stacked! We have Johnson vs Benavedez, Faber McDonald, Condit Brown, there's Mendes, Dodson and Barboza as well. It's an absolutely stacked card from top to bottom and I can't wait
