The UFC will roll into San Jose, Calif. on Saturday, April 20 for the seventh UFC on Fox fight card. Headlining the event will be a matchup between UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson and Gilbert Melendez—the man who is not only the No. 1 contender but possessor of the Strikeforce lightweight title.
Also of interest will be former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir squaring off against Strikeforce import Daniel Cormier, who brings an unbeaten 11-0 record into his UFC debut.
Long story short, this card is stacked from top to bottom, and there are very few, if any, fighters who need to worry about being pink-slipped with a loss. But that doesn't mean that there's no pressure to be found.
In fact, with so many highly ranked fighters, the pressure to win may be even greater. These fighters aren't merely fighting to live another day in the UFC but for so much more.
