-- Title fight at Target Center: GSP vs. Fitch
The Ultimate Fighting Championship just announced that it is moving the UFC on FX 5 event from Indianapolis to the Target Center in Minneapolis on October 5.
This marks the first time the UFC has held an event in Minneapolis since UFC 87, an August 2008 card that saw Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre absolutely brutalize the face of challenger Jon Fitch for 25 minutes at the Target Center.
Heavyweights Travis Browne and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva will headline the Ultimate Fighting Championship's return to Minnesota in October. USA TODAY Sports on Thursday learned from UFC officials that Browne will fight Silva on Oct. 5 in the main event of UFC on FX 5, which will take place at the Target Center in Minneapolis.
This latest fight, which will be telecast live on the FX cable channel, features a heavyweight tilt between Travis Browne and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, who looks remarkably like an Easter Island statue.
