UFC on Fox 7: Info and Predictions for Henderson vs. Melendez
Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Benson Henderson will put his lightweight title on the line once again at UFC on Fox 7, where he will appear in the main event against former Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez.

Melendez will be fighting for the first time since beating Josh Thomson in his final Strikeforce title defense nearly 11 months ago. Long considered one of the best lightweights competing outside of the Octagon, there will be a lot of pressure on Melendez to perform on Saturday.

UFC on Fox 7 will also feature the Octagon debut of Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix winner Daniel Cormier. Undefeated in 11 MMA fights, Cormier will be tested right away with a bout against former UFC heavyweight titleholder Frank Mir.

A number of other important matchups will be shown on Saturday's fight card, so here's a look at how to see each of them and prediction on which fighters fans should expect to win.
