No featured attraction? No problem. Despite the fact headliners have yet to be reported for the UFC’s highly-anticipated debut on FOX, the network announced they will offer up a ‘UFC Primetime’ special on October 30th to promote their MMA primetime premiere.

The hour-long show provides a behind-the-scenes look at the fighters’ preparation leading up to the November 12th main event. Depending upon your location, ‘UFC Primetime’ will either air immediately before or after the NFL on FOX game assigned to your local market that Sunday.

The Honda Center in Anaheim, California will host UFC on FOX, which will air live at 9PM ET/6PM PT. Thus far, only a featherweight bout between Dustin Poirier and Pablo Garza has been announced for the event.

Although the card is expected to offer a complete 11 to 12 bout lineup, only two scraps will be seen live during FOX’s 60-minute broadcast.

FOX Sports recently announced a multi-year agreement with the UFC that offers programming on several FOX networks, including FX and FUEL TV. Featured programming includes live fights, pre and post shows, countdown shows and a variety of UFC-produced original programs.
