The UFC and FOX have partnered for a number of programs since first linking up last year with the latest involving a preview show labeled Road to the Octagon. FOX announced their latest endeavor earlier today. However, in the same press release promoting the network’s new feature FOX also dropped information on an upcoming event despite the UFC having not officially revealed it yet.
According to the statement, the UFC will close out the year on FOX with a December 8 event. No bouts or even a location were attached to the card but it is clear the lineup will be for UFC on FOX 5 (with UFC on FOX 4 scheduled for August 4).
UFC on FOX 5 is expected to get a solid push from NFL programming during the lead up to the festivities with the related Road to the Octagon feature airing on December 2.
