UFC Fight Night 17 scheduled for February 7

The 17th installment of Spike TV’s “UFC Fight Night” fight series is set to take place on Saturday, February 7, 2009.

FiveOuncesOfPain.com confirmed the news on Tuesday morning after contacting a source close to the event who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

As of now, few details are known about the planned Spike TV special as a venue has yet to even be finalized.

    What would make a great main event for the show would be Diego Sanchez vs. Jake Shields.
