UFC on Fox Sports 1 1 fight card: Shogun vs. Sonnen

USA TODAY Sports

The UFC has announced a ton of bouts for their debut show on Fox Sports 1 on August 17th over the last few days, and what we have is one of the deepest free TV cards in a long time.

Zuffa has spent the last few days adding bouts to the debut show on UFC on Fox Sports 1 in Boston on August 17th, and all I can say is wow. The six-fight main card is amazing for a free show, and the prelims are pretty nice too. In the last day or so, three undercard fights have been added - a light heavyweight battle between Cody Donovan (8-2, 1-0 UFC) and Ovince St. Preux (13-5, 1-0 UFC); a lightweight fight between Ramsey Nijem (7-3, 3-2 UFC) and James Vick (4-0, 0-0 UFC); and a featherweight scrap between TUF winner Diego Brandao (17-8, 3-1 UFC) and Daniel Pineda (17-9, 3-2 UFC).

The entire main card and four of the preliminary card fights will air on Fox Sports 1 in a huge five-hour broadcast. A few fights will also be streamed on Facebook. The main event will see former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua take on Chael Sonnen. The co-main is a heavyweight scrap between former K-1 and Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem and Travis Browne. Other notable fighters on the main card include Urijah Faber, Uriah Hall, and Joe Lauzon.
