First official fight card under the UFC / Fox deal begins to take shapePosted on November 17, 2011, 10:34 PM by Trent Reinsmith
This past weekend’s UFC on Fox event was just a teaser for what is to come when the deal between the UFC and Fox officially begins in January. It appears that the first event under the seven year deal between the UFC and FOX will take place on January 20 and will originate from Nashville, TN, with the card being broadcast on the FX network.
The UFC recently began filling that fight card. The evening’s main event will feature a lightweight bout between Melvin Guillard and Jim Miller. Both fighters seemed to be on their way to lightweight title contention when their progress was abruptly halted in their last fights. Miller dropped a unanimous decision to the freight train that is Ben Henderson, while Guillard was submitted in the first round of his bout against Joe Lauzon.
