While the UFC has yet to target any fights, prominent Arizona fighters such as former champions Benson Henderson and Jamie Varner along former ASU wrestlers turned UFC superstars Cain Velasquez, Dan Henderson, Ryan Bader, John Moraga and C.B. Dollaway would all be strong candidates to appear on the night’s main card.
