'UFC Primetime' Scheduled For October 30th Fox Debut

The UFC will make it's official debut on Fox earlier than expected. Directly following the promotion's announcement of a landmark deal between the two entertainment titans, Fox Sports executives announced their intention to air a one-hour special dubbed "UFC Primetime" on October 30th.

According to a statement released by the network, "UFC Primetime" will be "an intense, one-hour, behind-the-scenes look at the fighters' preparation leading up to the Nov. 12 main event," (via TVbytheNumbers.com).

The special will either broadcast from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. ET as lead-in to NFL programming, or from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. ET as post-NFL programming, depending on regional schedules.

‘UFC on Fox' will be held at Anaheim, California's Honda Center. No headliner has been announced for the November 12th event, though a recent rumor from Fightline.com speculated that a matchup between former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and current Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson could be on tap.
