UFC Primetime Special Airs On Fox October 30

UFC Primetime is set to return this fall, but this time from its new home on the Fox network. The special has been used many times in the past as a vehicle to promote some of the biggest main events in UFC history, and the UFC is pulling out all the stops for its network debut on November 12th.  Additionally, the show will be a single, one hour special as opposed to its traditional, one hour, three part series, and will air either pre or post game, depending on the market.

The main card is still a mystery, but Dana White has already stated via his Twitter account that he will announcing the main event on a conference call at 10am PT tomorrow. With the importance of having a high profile, exciting fight for it’s Fox debut, it will be interesting to see who will be featured on the show, but whoever it ends up being will certainly get to enjoy the heavy promotion by the UFC’s new home, Fox.

UFC Primetime airs Sunday October 30th, 3 – 4pm ET (Pre NFL) or 4:30 – 5:30 ET (Post NFL – Including Post – Game Show).

    God i hope Silva is on this card i know he just fought but really he seems to be unbeatable.. It only makes sense to put him up against someone of worthwhile talent such as GSP or Jones bump him up to light heavyweight.

  2. Jeremy says:

    Since DW already stated Silva wont be fighting on the card.. I hope its Dan Henderson/Machida or Henderson/Shogun.. either fight would be a hell of a main event to start out on spike..

      Holy fuck you’re a genius. Both of those fights would not only be incredibly high profile, but some amazing fights to watch from start to finish.

    Start out on Spike eh?

    Genius.
