SANTA MONICA, Calif. – The UFC on Fox fighters weighed in on Friday in Santa Monica, Calif., and the show is all set for Saturday night.
The main event features a fight for the heavyweight title as champion Cain Velasquez returns to where he won the belt, defending it against No. 1 contender Junior dos Santos. Both are heavy hitters and despite Velasquez feeling it will go the distance, there is a strong chance this fight may finish with a brutal knockout.
Clay Guida and Benson Henderson will face each other in the evening's co-main event. The fight will determine who the No. 1 contender is and set up a lightweight championship fight with Frankie Edgar at UFC Japan in February.
The rest of the prelims feature a number of talented fighters and should prove to be an entertaining time for those watching on Facebook and Fox.com.
