Breaking News: UFC headed to Houston?

Sources are telling that there are plans in the works to hold UFC on Versus here in the Bayou City on January 22, 2011.  The main event for the card would feature a pair of fighters with Houston ties in Melvin Guillard and Yves Edwards at a venue yet to be named, though the Toyota Center seems the most likely location.

We are trying to confirm if in fact Houston is the location for the event, but as of now the final location has not been confirmed.

UPDATE (10/15) – has confirmed that the fight will in fact be held at Ft. Hood and not here in Houston. Bad news for Houston, but still good news for Texas that the UFC is returning.  Guillard and Edwards have not responded to our request for comments at this time.
