The UFC will invade a new part of California later this year.

The promotion announced Saturday night that UFC Fight Night 123 will take place Dec. 9 at Save Mart Center in Fresno. The event will air on FS1 with prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

The trip marks the UFC’s first appearance in Fresno, though the city in California’s Central Valley is no stranger to professional MMA.

The now-defunct Strikeforce held several events at the arena on Fresno State University’s campus, the final time coming in Oct. 2010.
