UFC President Dana White wants to invite all sports fans from around the world to watch the UFC on FOX 1 event this upcoming Saturday, November 12. For the first time ever, the UFC will be airing a LIVE Heavyweight title fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos on national television.
From Dana White:
“One of the great things about being a sports fan is remembering exactly where you were when a moment in history was created…. Regardless of the year, the teams or the outcome, sports give us an outlet and an opportunity to be a part of history. It’s something we can tell our kids about decades later, something we relive with our buddies over beers as we recount where we were and how our lives have changed since. In just a few days, we at the Ultimate Fighting Championship are presenting fans across the world with another opportunity to be a part of sports history. This Saturday, live and free on FOX from the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., the UFC heavyweight championship of the world will be decided when undefeated Cain Velasquez defends his crown against knockout artist and number one contender Junior dos Santos. Not only does this mark our first event on FOX since we announced a multi-year broadcast agreement with the network this past summer, but it marks a return to the glory days for many sports fans. It signals a return to the days when sports’ biggest prize – the world heavyweight title – is decided live and free on network television.”
