UFC Primetime: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos Premieres Today on UFC.com

UFC PRIMETIME® GOES BEHIND-THE-SCENES FOR HIGHLY ANTICIPATED CAIN VELASQUEZ VS. JUNIOR DOS SANTOS TITLE FIGHT

New installment premieres on Fox Sunday afternoon, October 30 - check local listings
In anticipation of their world heavyweight title clash at UFC® on FOX: VELASQUEZ VS. DOS SANTOS, UFC® champion Cain Velasquez and challenger Junior dos Santos will be featured on UFC Primetime®, an all-access documentary.

This hard-hitting episode will premiere Sunday, October 30 following or preceding the NFL on Fox game (varies by market, check local listings). Re-airs will follow on ufc.com beginning Monday, October 31 and on FUEL TV Wednesday, November 2. UFC Primetime, produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®), is a look into the lives and preparation of Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.

Last October, Cain Velasquez (fighting out of San Jose, Calif.) became the promotion's first-ever Mexican heavyweight champion by defeating superstar Brock Lesnar in the first round. Raised by immigrant parents, Velasquez was a two-time All-American wrestler at Arizona State University. His speed and power have been the keys to beating bigger foes throughout his career, which now boasts a perfect record of 9-0.

With a perfect 7-0 record in the UFC, Junior dos Santos (fighting out of Santa Catarina, Brazil) finished his first five fights against names such as Mirko Cro Cop, Gabriel Gonzaga, Gilbert Yvel, Stefan Struve and Fabricio Werdum. The rising star has one of the top striking games in the heavyweight division and showed his ability to go into deep water with dominant decisions over Roy “Big Country” Nelson and Shane Carwin.

“This is our Forrest Griffin-Stephan Bonnar, now on a huge, massive platform, and we need to deliver, and there’s no doubt in my mind, and I will bet anything and everything and am betting that these guys (Velasquez and dos Santos) are going to deliver,” said UFC president Dana White, referring to the classic Ultimate Fighter season one finale bout in 2005 that kicked off the mixed martial arts explosion that has turned the sport into the fastest growing one in the world.
 
UFC on Fox: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos will air live on Fox Saturday, November 12 from the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA at 9:00 PM ET/ 6:00 PM PT. Live prelims will air on a site or channel to be determined.
