“UFC Fight Night 20” takes place Monday, Jan. 11, 2010, the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. The event will air live on Spike TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET.

Headlining the card we have Gray “The Bully” Maynard taking on TUF 5 winner Nate Diaz. Diaz needs to keep putting together some wins, and a victory over top ten ranked Maynard would definitely be a nice feather in his cap as well as boosting his stock considerably in the lightweight division.

Diaz will have his hands full against Maynard who is undefeated and is one of the top contenders in line for a shot at B.J. Penn’s lightweight title. Here are our predictions for “UFC Fight Night 20”:

“UFC 102: Couture vs. Nogueira” took place Sat., Aug. 29, 2009 at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Ore. It was the UFC’s first event in Oregon and the crowd had to be pleased with what they saw. Without a doubt, the main event fight between legends Randy Couture and Antonio “Minotauro” Nogueira stole the show and absolutely deserve “Fight of the Night” honors if not “Fight of the Year.”

Dana White reported at the UFC 102 post-fight press conference, that tonight’s event did not sell out the Rose Garden, with a paid attendance of 16,088, but those numbers do rank in the top five for the state of Oregon. White also reported a live gate of $1.92 million.
