The UFC is busting out all the stops for their debut on Fox networks.
The promotion today released a schedule of programming that will precede next weekend’s UFC on Fox 1 broadcast, spanning several of the Fox networks channels and featuring a host of high-profile UFC talent.
Beginning with the live airing of the weigh-ins on Fuel TV, Fox will carry various programs featuring everyone from UFC president Dana White, former UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar and current UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones to Forrest Griffin, Chuck Liddell and Joe Rogan, taking various roles on different shows leading up to the hour-long heavyweight title fight broadcast.
FoxSports.com and Fox Radio will also get in on the coverage, with both outlets carrying a multitude of pre-fight coverage. FoxSports.com will begin coverage with the press conference on Wednesday and will also carry the pre-fight workouts, the weigh-ins, the preliminary fights and a special profile piece on UFC president Dana White. Fox Radio joins the fray at 8:00pm ET fight day, beginning with pre-fight analysis and red carpet interviews.
The fight takes place on Saturday, November 12, from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California and will see UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez and challenger Junior dos Santos battle over the championship in the main event.
