UFC On Fox 2: White Confirms Four Fights, Two-Hour Runtime

Details for the UFC's sophomore effort on Fox have been finalized. As expected, UFC on Fox 2 will feature a longer runtime and more fights than the promotion's network debut. UFC President Dana White revealed the specifics following the conclusion of UFC 139.

"Two hours," White bluntly explained. "Four fights."

The official broadcast length is a stone's throw from UFC ringside commentator Mike Goldberg's prior claims of a two-and-a-half hour runtime.

Nonetheless, White refused to reveal any major details for the primetime tilts, but smiled at the prospect of former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans or brash middleweight contender Chael Sonnen headlining the card.

"I don't think you're going to see a title fight," the UFC President stated. "But I don't think you're going to be disappointed with what you're going to see. We're giving you some good fights."

Previously White told Ariel Helwani the match-ups would be confirmed and announced sometime near the onset of the upcoming week.

"I haven't told Fox (the match-ups) yet," he explained over the weekend. "I'm going to tell them on Monday. So once I tell them, I can tell the rest of the world."
