Last night (Sat., Nov. 5, 2011), Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) made history with its first ever non-title, five-round main event between Chris Leben vs. Mark Munoz at UFC 138 in Birmingham, England.
The event nearly closed the books on the promotion's (live event) deal with Spike TV -- all that remains is The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale on Dec. 3, 2011. UFC 138 also broke the "paid attendance" record for any kind of event at Birmingham's LG Arena.
But, the high-rolling Zuffa contingent isn't done setting precedents and breaking records. Not even close.
UFC will put on its first-ever show on FOX this upcoming Saturday (Nov. 12, 2011) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., with a card that features the heavyweight clash between current division champion Cain Velasquez and number one contender Junior dos Santos.
The show is the first of many to come and should give mixed martial arts (MMA) -- new, old and still on the fence -- a taste of what is to come.
After the jump, we'll talk about the UFC on Fox 1 full fight card, how you can catch all of the action, as well as all the other pertinent information about this ground-breaking event.
