It didn’t seem possible years ago when the UFC was struggling to remain on PPV, but tonight the worlds largest MMA organization takes that next step into the mainstream when they make their debut on network television. Coming to us from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California; it’s UFC on FOX: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos. As always, Five Ounces of Pain will provide complete results along with a round by round recap of the main event fight.
The action kicks off at 4:45 PM EST on Facebook.com or FoxSports.com with nine preliminary fights. Then at 9 PM EST, the UFC goes live on FOX with the main event.
UFC on FOX 1 is headlined by Cain Velasquez, the undefeated heavyweight champion of the world, taking on knockout artist Junior dos Santos in a fight guaranteed to deliver fireworks. While that will be the only fight airing live on FOX, the co-main event features a lightweight showdown between Ben Henderson and Clay Guida, in a battle to determine the #1 contender to the title.
