The fight card of UFC on FOX 5 seems to have an unusually large number of Asian American fighters. Benson Henderson defends his lightweight title against Nate Diaz, with BJ Penn also on the main card. On the preliminary card, Nam Phan is replacing Eddie Yagin, who pulled out of his fight with Dennis Siver after being hospitalized with swelling around his brain. Yagin has left the hospital and is expected to fully recover. UFC on FOX 5 is scheduled for December 8, with the main card on FOX and preliminary matches on FX.
