The UFC on FOX card begins at 6 p.m. and will feature two fights. It will last one hour and be completed before the start of Pacquiao's bout.

“We’ll be out of there before Pacquiao even walks to the ring,” Fertitta said. “This is going to be a perfect night for any fight fan. Get together with your friends, watch two big fights in the UFC and then change the channel to ride into the Pacquiao pay-per-view.”

Pretty sure Mayweather would out draw them pretty easy as well.

Idk why even try to put on a card this late, and then its the same night as the boxing.

But i guess some free fights, if i have that night off.

The question is, who the hell do they get for the two fights? What weight classes? I don't know if I like this idea. I was hoping the first card on Fox would be stacked to the gills, not what essentially amounts to a two fight exhibition.

It's not a 2 fight exhibition. The rest of the fights (from what I've read) will be shown on a free Facebook (or Fuel) stream...kinda like "dark" matches in WWE. Expect these two fights to be the Main and Co-Main events of the evening.

I'm wondering if they will be semi-big fights and if one will be 5 rounds or not.

I'm thinking Franklin could be one of the two, idk how bad lil nog was injuried, so could try to set that up again.


Just kinda random, but I was looking at the MW's on the ufc page and thought, I wouldn't mind seeing Leben vs Herman fight just anytime not specifically for this card.

Something just seems weird.......

That doesn't sound too bad. It all just depends on which fighters will be fighting in the two matches.

Maybe they should put the remaining 3 main card fights on spike and the prelims on facebook. And Brock vs. Alistair vs. is what I think will headline the Fox portion.

It may be first two bouts of main card that night
My guess is guida vs henderson may be one of them
Curious what this card is. It isn't a fight night nor a numbered event

I feel ya. I just wonder why they wouldn't put at least 4-5 fights out there. If the show is scheduled to wrap before the Pac-Man fight, why not put a full sized card together? Don't get me wrong I love free fights, and I'll watch the FB fights before I turn on Fox... I guess I was just hoping for a bigger splash on their network return.

We're in uncharted waters now boys. No telling what's around the bend or what hellish creatures await. All we can do is wait and see. Wait and see.
