UFC on FOX: 'Velasquez vs Dos Santos' preliminary fights remain untelevised

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

If you were hoping to catch the 155-pound barn-burner between Clay Guida and Ben Henderson, well, I hope you have a ticket to the UFC on FOX event on Nov. 12 in Anaheim, California.

Or at the very least, high speed Internet access.

That's because the preliminary card for the network television debut will remain untelevised, according to UFC President Dana White, who told media members on today's pre-fight conference call that 'Velasquez vs. Dos Santos' is exactly what it sounds like.

What you see is what you get.

"There's only going to be one fight. Heavyweight championship fight is the only fight that's going to be on Fox. (Even if) it goes 10 seconds. There's going to be a lot of breaking down the fight, features, going backstage. This is probably the first time we've ever done this I think, if we did we did it a long time ago, an interview with the guys before they come out. It's going to be a completely different format than we've ever done before."

The UFC on FOX undercard will stream live via Facebook and and is almost certainly going to show up on one of the FOX channels like FX or Fuel TV at a later date.

Here is the current UFC on FOX: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos" fight card and line-up:
