Above is the audio (in two parts) of Tuesday's press conference to promote UFC on Fox: Velasquez vs. dos Santos. The conference was held in Hollywood, California and hosted by UFC President Dana White. Fans were welcome to attend. UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, number-one heavyweight contender Junior dos Santos, and Fox executive Eric Shanks sat on the panel.
The crowd was out in full force due to the open nature of the press conference, cheering raucously every time their preferred fighter spoke. When asked if he had ever seen such a wild crowd for a media event, White responded with a chuckle, "Yeah, I have, but this one's pretty crazy."
Both Velasquez and dos Santos seemed to appreciate the enthusiasm, and spoke at length about the training and preparation leading into the historic event. Each man agreed that it was on their shoulders to make the night one to remember, a la Forrest Griffin vs. Stephan Bonnar.
UFC on Fox is slated for November 12th at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Tickets go on sale for the general public on September 23rd.
