Does this promo get you pumped for UFC's debut on Fox Sports 1?

We're 11 days away from the Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) first television fight card on Fox Sports 1 as UFC Fight Night 26: "Shogun vs. Sonnen" is scheduled for Sat., Aug. 17, 2013, at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

The show will feature a highly intriguing light heavyweight fight between former UFC 205 lb. champion Mauricio Rua and recent title contender Chael Sonnen, who enters the bout on his first two-fight losing streak in nearly nine years.

The co-main event of the evening will see two of the world's top heavyweight contenders go to war as former Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem will look to reclaim his top contender spot against number eight-ranked Travis Brown in an important fight for the future of the heavyweight division.

In addition, fan-favorite Urijah Faber gets back in the cage against Yuri Alcantara while red hot Matt Brown looks to increase his UFC winning streak to six against the equally smoking Mike Pyle.
