The UFC on Fox debut show will be a showcase for the promotion after reaching a 7-year deal with the television giant, kicking off Nov 12 with the UFC heavyweight title up for grabs between champion Cain Velasquez and challenger Junior Dos Santos.

Fans in the United States will be able to tune into one of the largest network television stations to watch the action kicking off at 9pm ET/6pm PT on Saturday Nov 12.

The only question left unanswered up until Wednesday was the availability for international fans to be able to watch the fight.

UFC President Dana White answered that question by stating that the main event would be available in more than a dozen countries.

“It’s going to be in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Japan, Korea, Fox Sports Latin America, Mena, New Zealand, the Philippines, Thailand, Ireland and the U.K,” White revealed.

For Canadian viewers, the UFC’s broadcast partner Rogers SportsNet will broadcast the Velasquez vs. Dos Santos fight.

The other countries will have similar deals where fans can tune in to watch the UFC heavyweight title fight that will kick off a new era in mixed martial arts history.

The remaining fights on the card will be available on Facebook.com through the UFC’s official page as well as Fox.com.
