Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos will lead the UFC's charge on to network television.

UFC president Dana White today announced that Velasquez and Dos Santos will headline UFC on FOX 1, which takes place Nov. 12 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The event marks the UFC's debut on network television and kicks-off a seven-year deal between the UFC and FOX, a partnership that also includes UFC programming on FX and FUEL TV.

Dana said the title fight would be the only fight on the main card. But, this fight has all the potential to end early. What happens then? Stream the prelims?

There should be less complaints about "only 2 fights" being broadcast now. Thanks Uncle Dana.

EDIT: Posted this before reading the article, I guess there's only 1 fight guaranteed. You know what assuming does...

This will be the only fight. If it ends early, they'll do like they always do...use filler from the prelims and, of course, the obligatory awkward interview between Rogan and Dana.

Apparently both fighters were offered some major $$$ to fight for the FOX event.

I think I have the fight going to a decision. So that could eat up most of this hour.

According to Dana, a lot of the time will be spent educating those who've never seen an MMA fight. They need to know what they're watching.

Eric Shanks answered the question. Said they would either show a full replay of one of the prelims or "highlights" from the whole undercard.

FOX plans on launching the UFC with "Super Bowl, red-carpet treatment"

I LOVE the idea of showing prelim highlights.

Agreed. Show the new folk all of the good stuff. Suck 'em in and then let 'em discover lay 'n pray once they're already hooked.
