Although UFC 134 will be taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this weekend Zuffa is already working on events scheduled in November. UFC 139 is tentatively scheduled for November, 19th, in San Jose, California. The event is believed to be headlined by a UFC heavyweight title fight between the champion Cain Velasquez and the #1 contender Junior dos Santos. Several fights have been verbally agreed upon and listed on the UFC website for this event. Those fights are listed below:
- Chris Weidman vs. Tom Lawlor
- Urijah Faber vs. Brian Bowles
- Rafael dos Anjos vs. Gleison Tibau
- Rick Story vs. Martin Kampmann
- Ryan Bader vs. Jason Brilz
- Stephan Bonnar vs. Kyle Kingsbury
Also, it has been heavily rumored that Josh Koscheck will fight on this card, potentially making the leap up to the middleweight division. It would only be natural that he be on this card with San Jose being the home of his fight camp American Kickboxing Academy otherwise known as AKA. Koscheck has been out of action sinec losing to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 124 last December. This looks to be a very solid card on paper. What is your opinion of the card so far?
