If Clay Guida (Pictured) and Ben Henderson were hoping a replay of their lightweight shootout would appear on FOX, tough cookies. On Wednesday, UFC president Dana White confirmed the only bout airing during their primetime debut will be Cain Velasquez’s title defense against Junior dos Santos.
“There’s only going to be one fight,” White flatly stated. “The heavyweight championship fight is the only fight that’s going to be on FOX.
“[Even] if it goes 10 seconds.”
Their 265-pound affair is not expected to go the full 25 minutes, so many were under the impression FOX would round out the live hour-long show with preliminary action that took place earlier in the evening – specifically the critical contest between Guida and Bendo.
Regardless, fans will still be able to watch all of the card’s scraps for free. As White confirmed over the weekend, the UFC’s Facebook page will stream every prelim bout live.
The Honda Center in Anaheim, California hosts the November 12th extravaganza.
Here is the event’s official agenda:
Aaron Rosa vs. Matt Lucas
Paul Bradley vs. Mike Pierce
