In a twist, the prelims for December’s UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz event will air on FX instead of Fuel TV, according to a report by MMAFighting.com. The card goes down December 8 from Seattle.
The prelims will begin at 5 p.m. ET and feature Brendan Schaub vs. Lavar Johnson, Michael Chiesa vs. Marcus LeVessuer and four other fights. Three bouts will stream via Facebook beginning at 3:45 p.m. ET.
The Fox-televised main card boasts UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson against Nate Diaz. Also, the UFC on Fox: Johnson vs. Dodson card in January will also feature FX prelims.
