RIO DE JANEIRO – The UFC's third network-televised event likely will take place on May 5.
On Friday UFC president Dana White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that's the date officials have targeted for UFC on FOX 3. f4wonline.com first reported the date.
However, a host city, venue and potential fights haven't been determined for the card, which is the second of four that FOX has planned for 2012.
"May 5 is the date we're holding for FOX," White told MMAjunkie.com. "It has been for a while."
The UFC made its network-TV debut with UFC on FOX 1 in November. The abbreviated/teaser show featured just one televised fight – Junior Dos Santos' title-clinching knockout of then-heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez. However, later this month at UFC on FOX 2 in Chicago, FOX airs three main-card bouts, and FX carries the event's full preliminary card.LINK
