UFC announced on Twitter Wednesday that it will be returning to Sacramento, California on December 14 for a UFC on FOX card.  Officials confirmed that the event will take place at the Arco Arena.

This card will mark the first UFC event in Sacramento since UFC 73 in Sacramento.  Zuffa, the parent company of the UFC, however held a number of WEC shows in Sacramento through 2010.

No fights have been announced, but it is hard to imagine that local fighter, Urijah Faber, would not be on the card.  Having last fought Iuri Alcantara in August, Faber could very well make a return to action in his hometown and look to extend his current winning streak to 4 fights.

    But any of the Team Alpha Male fighters on the card would work for ticket sales.
