The UFC is hosting a press conference at 4 p.m. ET to promote their debut show on the Fox network. UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, challenger Junior dos Santos , and UFC President Dana White will appear at the press conference. Video will stream at UFC.com.

[Update] Embedded video after the jump.

Cain Velasquez (9-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) will attempt to make his first defense of the heavyweight belt he won from Brock Lesnar last October at UFC 121. Velasquez injured his rotator cuff in the fight against Lesnar. The subsequent surgery and rehab kept him out of training for over six months.

Junior dos Santos (13-1 MMA, 7-0 UFC) reaffirmed his place as the number one contender with a dominant decision victory over Shane Carwin at UFC 131. Dos Santos was originally scheduled to fight former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, but another round of diverticulitis forced Lesnar off the card.

The press conference takes place at W Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood, California, and it is open to the public.
