The first installment of UFC Primetime on FOX will be shown Sunday with the show being aired immediately following regional NFL action depending on the market. It will also be streamed through the UFC’s website and broadcasted FUEL TV later in the week.
UFC on FOX: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos features UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez defending his title for the first time against #1 contender. The fight will be held November 12 from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
“This is our Forrest Griffin-Stephan Bonnar, now on a huge massive platform, and we need to deliver, and there’s no doubt in my mind, and I will bet anything and everything and am betting that these guys (Velasquez and dos Santos) are going to deliver,” UFC President Dana White said of the special.
The special will be a condensed version of the regular three-part show and, as usual, will document the two competitors’ lives and training leading up to the historic bout.
