You know what's getting me excited? Hearing Bruce Buffer announce "IT'S TIIIIIIIIME FOR THE MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING" on Fox. I'm getting goosebumps thinking about it. Tonight is the the premier of UFC on Fox with Cain Velasquez defending his heavyweight belt against Junior Dos Santos.
The fight airs live on FOX at 9:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. PT. The production will be different from what we as fans are used to seeing with UFC fights. While the broadcast kicks off at the aforementioned times, the fight probably won't start until 35 minutes into the hour. For the first 35 minutes the fans watching from home will be able to see live interview with the fighters as well as breakdowns of the fight from the broadcast team.
Tonight is about introducing the sport to the non-fan and this time will be spent educating them on the sport. The first two rounds of the fight will be commercial free. And as Dana has said, it doesn't matter if this goes "25 seconds or 25 minutes" it will be the only fight shown on the broadcast.
Round 1: HERE WE GO! The energy is insane. Cain lands a leg kick. Right hand from JDS. Junior tries a front kick and is nearly taken down. Body punch from Dos Santos. Cain looking to attack the lead leg. HOLY CRAP! Junior lands a ridiculous overhand that drops Cain. Junior swarms and lands several punches. Cain looked out and Big John steps in and stops the fight.
Official Result: Junior Dos Santos via Knockout at 1:04
