Only one fight will be shown on UFC on FOX

There are hopeful fans out there that would like to have enjoyed Ben Henderson take on Clay Guida on their television later this month, but today Dana White confirmed that only the title fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos will be aired.  Should the fight go the distance, or if it “only goes 10 seconds,” it will be the only one shown according to the president of the promotion.

It is not something worth fretting over, because after all you can enjoy all nine undercard bouts by streaming them from either Facebook or Fox.com.

Bellator 57 to host middleweight tournament finale

Bellator 58 was originally scheduled to host the middleweight tournament finale between Alexander Shlemenko and Vitor Vianna, however the promotion has announced that the fight will now take place a week earlier at Bellator 57.  While there is no official word as to why the change will occur, there is speculation that it is to balance off their final cards of this season after Bellator 57 lost a non-title fight between 115-pound women’s champion Zoila Gurgel and Carina Damm.

Bellator 57 will take place at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Canada, on Nov. 12.
