A pair of former number one contenders will square off when the UFC returns to San Jose this April. Nate Diaz will square off with Josh Thomson at UFC on Fox 7. The UFC announced the move Monday evening.
The bout will pit the last number one contenders for the Strikeforce and UFC titles when Thomson meets Diaz. The pairing will likely air on the Fox main card but there is no official word on that yet.
The bout will join what will be a stacked UFC on Fox 7 fight card in San Jose, California. The main event for the card will have lightweight champion Benson Henderson putting his title on the line against final Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez. The card will be co-headlined by a heavyweight battle between Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir.
The card will take place April 20.
