UFC on FOX 3 video opening for 'Diaz vs Miller' event that won't make the air

Long live Face the Pain.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the FOX network tonight (Sat., May 5, 2012) with the "Diaz vs. Miller" event scheduled for 8 p.m. ET. And because it's not on pay-per-view (PPV), we won't be treated to the UFC opening we're used to.

That includes black backdrop interviews with the top fighters on the card and highlight video packages introducing each match-up taking place on the card set to the soothing sounds of Stemm's Face the Pain.

As UFC President Dana White tweeted, "you won't see this on FOX tomorrow but I wanted to share it with you."

So take it in, Maniacs, as you gear up for tonight's big event. It's free and with four solid match-ups, it should be a ton of fun.
