The seventh turn of the UFC on Fox series will air this Saturday, April 20. The event has a decidedly UFC vs. Strikeforce feel to it, with seven of the card's fighters having most recently competed in the now defunct promotion.

Capping off the night will be a lightweight title fight between UFC champion Ben Henderson and Strikeforce's last titleholder, Gilbert Melendez. 

All told, there will be six hours of fights to soak in, which will come to you via Facebook, FX and Fox.
