The UFC is producing another installment of their UFC Primetime series to promote the upcoming heavyweight title fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos. The series is set to premiere this weekend before and after this Sunday’s NFL on FOX game, depending on your local market.
This hard-hitting episode will premiere Sunday, October 30 following or preceding the NFL on Fox game (varies by market, check local listings). Re-airs will follow on ufc.com beginning Monday, October 31 and on FUEL TV Wednesday, November 2. UFC Primetime, produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®), is a look into the lives and preparation of Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.
“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,” said UFC president Dana White, referring to the classic Ultimate Fighter season one finale bout in 2005 that kicked off the mixed martial arts explosion that has turned the sport into the fastest growing one in the world.
UFC on FOX 1 “Velasquez vs. Dos Santos” takes place on Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California and will air live on FOX at 9pm ET/6pm PT. The latest UFC on FOX 1 fight card can be found in our fight cards section.
