Saturday night, the UFC returns for their fourth event of December, and boy, is it a doozie!  With heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos taking on former champion Cain Velasquez in the main event, the stakes couldn't be any higher.

Also competing on the card are popular notables Chris Leben, Joe Lauzon and surging contenders like Tim Boetsch and Alan Belcher who are looking to lay claim on a middleweight title shot.

Unfortunately, if you don't know how to tune in to the event, you'll be unable to catch the action.

Never fear! That's what we are here for.
