UFC on Fox Debut Promises ‘a Championship Level Fight’

Details on the main event for the first UFC on Fox event in November remain sketchy, but there’s one thing for sure…

It’s going to be a big fight.

With several cards already packed with main events between now and the end of November, it would appear that most of the major names available would be locked up and already signed to fights, but UFC president Dana White is promising a major delivery for the first UFC on Fox event.

While rumors have swirled about a potential title fight between UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and current Strikeforce champion Dan Henderson, White won’t commit to anything.

At least until after this weekend’s event in UFC 134 has concluded.

“We’re working on it. We’ll see how things go this weekend, and then we’ll figure out who we’re going to deliver,” White commented when speaking to ESPN 790 in Miami.

The magnitude of the fight is what can’t be questioned.

Whether Anderson Silva is involved or not, White is guaranteeing a major fight for the Fox debut, and doesn’t take the possibility of a title fight away either.

“I want to go out with a big fight. A championship level fight,” said White.

All of the UFC champions are currently tied up with other fights already scheduled, but things can change and anything could be possible for the UFC on Fox event scheduled for Nov. 12 in Anaheim.

For now, White is keeping mum about what’s in the planning until at least after the event in Brazil goes down this weekend.

    Hands down unquestionably Anderson Silva. Based on how most of the pride fighters have done when they’ve come to the UFC, IMO, shows that the competition in Pride was not at the level of the UFC. Fedor is definitely #2, but with the who’s who of Anderson’s record and two destructions at LHW, I have to rank him as the greatest of all time.

    Hands down and just in time for the main event on fox, I believe the main event will feature Brock Lesnar….but not sure to who he would be fighting, but its a good possibility it could be Frank Mir…

    Brock Lesnar will be fighting on Fox along with Tito Ortiz! Opponents don’t really matter as long as those two are fighting Brock’s fight will be a #1 contender fight! Tito is just Tito so you know he will bring the viewers. I will tune in and watch both of those guys fight.

    Sounds like one hell of a main card to me

    I like Phrank’s card, with the exception of Brock vs Carwin – I think Carwin would kill him a second time out, and I’m not all that excited to see that. Not particularly excited to see Brock vs Mir again, either… weird, really, cuz I do wanna see Brock in there again, and it would make sense to have him headline this card, with the name value an’ all… off the top of my head, what about Fatty “Fatboy” Nelson?

    Maybe it’s best I’m not Joe Silva…
