UFC on FOX Prelims to air on Facebook and on Nov. 12

via <a href=""></a>

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing another round of prelims to its official Facebook page, this time for the historic UFC on FOX 1: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos" event on Nov. 12 from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

You know the deal by now: "Like" the UFC on Facebook, watch free fights. It really is that simple.

This time, though, the complete preliminary card, which is to say every fight except Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos, will also air on

No announcement has been made to say this will be the norm from here on out, but this most certainly serves its purpose for the time being. UFC President Dana White did say to expect the Facebook fights to go away starting when the FOX deal really kicks in come Jan. 2012.

Nothing wrong with a stopgap in the meantime.

Here's what's in store for Facebook "friends" -- and goers -- on Nov. 12:

155 lbs.: Clay Guida vs. Ben Henderson
145 lbs.: Dustin Poirier vs. Pablo Garza
145 lbs.: Cub Swanson vs. Ricardo Lamas
170 lbs.: DaMarques Johnson vs. Clay Harvison
135 lbs.: Norifumi Yamamoto vs. Darren Uyenoyama
145 lbs.: Mackens Semerzier vs. Robert Peralta
135 lbs.: Alex Caceres vs. Cole Escovedo
185 lbs.: Mike Pierce vs. Paul Bradley
205 lbs.: Aaron Rosa vs. Matt Lucas

UFC on FOX 1 marks the debut of the world's largest fight promotion on network television. And it's bringing out the big guns with Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez defending his title against Brazilian knockout king Junior dos Santos.
