UFC On Fox 1: Velasquez Vs. Dos Santos Fight Card

On Saturday, the UFC sees its debut on network television capped off with a bang as Junior dos Santos challenges California native Cain Velasquez for the UFC Heavyweight Championship in the card's main event. The night of fights features plenty of matchups, including a high-level lightweight tilt between Clay Guida and Ben Henderson, but the one-hour broadcast on Fox will over feature the heaveyweight title matchup.

The one-fight main card is something new for the UFC, and it goes hand-in-hand with the promotions debut on network TV. It's not likely that future fights on the network will only have one fight, but as an introductory "beginner's course", if you will, the first show will serve its purpose. It's MMA's big night and it's all focused on the heavyweight fighters, which is probably how it should be, as it's what seems to appeal the most to the casual viewers.
