While the rest of the mixed martial arts world can’t stop salivating over Saturday’s “UFC 136: Edgar vs. Maynard III” event, the planet’s premier MMA promotion still has “UFC on FOX” on their minds. On Tuesday, the company announced three bouts for their November 12th show.

A featherweight fight between Mackens Semerzier and Robert Peralta, a middleweight scrap with Paul Bradley and Mike Pierce, as well as a light heavyweight affair between Matt Lucas and Aaron Rosa were all added to the monumental card.

Heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez will defend his throne against Junior dos Santos in the night’s featured attraction. The 265-pound scrap is the only contest scheduled to air live during FOX’s hour-long broadcast, which begins at 9PM ET/6PM PT.

The Honda Center in Anaheim, California will host the shindig.
