The hour-long show will promote the network’s highly-anticipated MMA debut, which features a heavyweight title tilt between champion Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos (Pictured).

The documentary provides a behind-the-scenes look at the fighters’ preparation leading up to their November 12th scrap.

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.
