The UFC will make a familiar stop in late February for what will likely be the organization’s second PPV of 2013, as a report has surfaced stating Anaheim will host a card on February 23 at the Honda Center believed to be UFC 157. The Octagon has rolled through the city numerous times before including twice for heavyweight title-fights.
MMAJunkie was first to reveal the date/location. No bouts have been linked to the lineup.
The last UFC event to take place in Anaheim came this past November with UFC on FOX 1 where Cain Velasquez defended his heavyweight belt against current champion Junior dos Santos. Velasquez also happened to win his strap in Anaheim as well, defeating Brock Lesnar at UFC 121 in 2010. Considering Velasquez is set to face Dos Santos in a rematch late next month, odds are against him making a third consecutive appearance on an Anaheim-hosted card.
