The UFC announced this evening that President Dana White will make a major announcement Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.
White is expected to announce the main event for their debut on FOX on November 12. The promotion is looking to put together a big fight in order to draw eyes to their network TV debut.
White has been keeping mum as to who may appear on the card; he’s said for sure that it won’t be Anderson Silva, but that it could be someone who appeared on the UFC 134 fight card. Current rumors have Mauricio “Shogun” Rua — who beat Forrest Griffin emphatically at UFC 134 — facing off against fellow Pride veteran Dan Henderson on the show. A light-heavyweight scrap between Rich Franklin and Tito Ortiz has been rumored as well.
Who do you think will square off in the main event of this historic card? Let us know your thoughts in the “Comments” section below.
