UFC VP Chuck Liddell

FOX promised to host a star-studded red carpet extravaganza to kick off their MMA debut, and they weren’t kidding. This Saturday starting at 4PM PT, FUEL TV’s Nicole Dabeau will greet actors, athletes and other notables as they enter the Honda Center in Anaheim, California to watch Cain Velasquez defend his UFC heavyweight crown against Junior dos Santos.

UFC icons Chuck Liddell (Pictured) and Georges St-Pierre will be joined by countless celebrities on the red carpet. Of interesting note, Strikeforce’s Gina Carano was listed as an actor and not a mixed martial artist.

FOX’s live broadcast begins at 9PM ET/6PM PT. The 265-pound championship affair is the only scrap that will air during the hour-long show.
