Dana White made the announcement this morning that the Heavyweight Title fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos will headline the first UFC on FOX card. This card will only be a short hour special and it is not yet decided which other fight or two will be aired during the time slot.
Rumors had been floating around about Dan Henderson, Anderson Silva, Alistair Overeem and Brock Lesnar being on this card, and you still very well may see these guys in action with the exception of Anderson now that the main event is set.
Cain Velasquez hasn’t fought since taking the UFC Heavyweight Belt from Brock Lesnar in October of 2010, while Dos Santos has been active and impressive, dominating Shane Carwin in June at UFC 131.
This layoff could prove troublesome for the Mexican-American fighter as he had surgery on his back and was out of training for months. It will be interesting if he shows any ring rust against the Brazilian striker Dos Santos.
