All along the UFC and Fox have promised a celebrity-filled red carpet spectacular for their November 12th network debut. On Thursday that idea became somewhat clearer with the roll-call of expected personalities.

From the looks of it Fox has pulled out all the stops for Saturday, drawing from their various families of networks to put together a rather reputable guest list. Highlighting the festivities are acclaimed actor Mickey Rourke, comedian Nick Swardson, Sons of Anarchy's Ron Perlman, musician Travis Barker, and former Strikeforce women's champion Gina Carano.

The red carpet celebration kicks off live at 7:00 p.m. ET/4:00 p.m. PT on FUEL TV with host Nicole Dabeau and lasts throughout the night until the Fox-televised main event at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos SantosMMA Nation has the complete schedule of events.
