If you want some insight into how to fight UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez, who better to ask than the last man to face him inside the Octagon?
Former division kingpin Brock Lesnar, who was pounded out by Velasquez at UFC 121 just over a year ago, will be one of a handful of stars to appear on the FOX network as part of its blitzkrieg of pre-fight coverage that begins with the televised weigh in event on Nov. 11 via Fuel TV.
UFC on Fox: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos" airs live on Nov. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on (duh) the FOX network.
Lesnar will join Fox Sports’ host Curt Menefee and UFC President Dana White to kick things off on fight night. Earlier in the day, Fox NFL reporter Jay Glazer along with ESPN's "MMA Live" analyst Kenny Florian will also provide coverage while Stephan Bonnar mingles backstage with the fighters in attendance.
