The first official UFC-FOX event takes place in January (exact date TBA) when the organization makes its debut on FX.

Officials today announced the event, though its name and venue weren't revealed.

Two fights are official for the card: welterweights Josh Neer (32-10-1 MMA, 5-6 UFC) vs. Duane "Bang" Ludwig (22-11 MMA, 4-2 UFC) and heavyweights Pat Barry (6-4 MMA, 3-4 UFC) vs. Christian Morecraft (7-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC).

Additional event details are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

First card on Fox and they send out Barry and Morecraft? I must be watching different fights than everyone else on here, those two do not belong in the UFC let alone on a FOx card. The sport is reaching a mass audience, I could think of a hundred fights better than that one. I preach the sport to my friends, try to have them come over as much as possible on nights of events, then a chance to show so many people that have only seen the brief stint of Kimbo events on a national broadcast and they give us two guys who are in a loser go home event. Dont get me wrong, I dont mind the matchup, but it should not be in the UFC, and definetly not on the Fox card. I do love the other match up, has a great chance for fireworks!!

IDK how the internet service is or how fast information reaches you out in Iowa but the first FOX card was on saturday and it was for the heavyweight title. It also ended in very devastating fashion.

Sounds like a good start to a solid free card! I am glad to have another event in January. Season 11 ends in less than a month, good to have Season 12 halfway booked already!

so Ludwig/Neer has a great chance for fireworks but Barry/Morecraft doesnt? lol wut?

i dont remember a boring Barry fight, and Morecraft has yet to go to a decision. they may not be top end talent, but im pretty sure this fight will bring in more fans than a Fitch vs ____ fight....and Fitch is the #2 WW in the world. if it wasnt for Barry getting unlucky vs Kongo, he would have a winning UFC record.

and its not like this is the main event either. its free, stop whining

These are just the first two fights announced man. Chances are we'll get a lot more talent added to this card.

Exciting match ups, but I hope they aren't part of the main card.

THESE FIGHTS ARE ON FX.

Anyways, I expect a finish from the Barry/Morecraft fight and a war in the Neer/Ludwig fight.

So works for me.

How many bouts are being televised? 5 like a full PPV? Four like a Fight Night or will all fights be shown?
