FOX announces programming for UFC’s network debut

While it might be disappointing that Fox has chosen to only air the heavyweight title tilt between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos regardless of length, it’s impressive to note that while only one fight will air on Fox, the network is giving the UFC a solid programming push for the historic debut through Fox Deportes and FUEL TV.   The full schedule of programming includes weigh-ins live on FUEL TV on Friday and a Saturday programming schedule that begins at 3 p.m. ET with all three episodes of Cain Velasquez: Brown Pride airing on the Spanish-language Fox Deportes network.
