Honda Center To Host Velasquez vs. Dos Santos on November 12

If the UFC’s intention was to make an unforgettable first impression in its initial outing on Fox, the organization has certainly done its part, with UFC President Dana White announcing today that the November 12th event on the network will be a world heavyweight title fight between champion Cain Velasquez and number one contender Junior dos Santos live from Honda Center.

The highly anticipated clash between the two best heavyweights in the world will take place at Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The five round championship bout between Velasquez-dos Santos will occupy the one hour time slot on Fox, with the rest of the card airing in a method to be determined.

“Dana and the UFC have been great partners to us for many years. As host to the first UFC event in California, we’re excited to be part of another landmark night for the sport,” said Tim Ryan, President of Honda Center. “We couldn’t ask for a better matchup, having watched firsthand as Cain won the UFC heavyweight title here at Honda Center in October, and know November 12 will be an unforgettable night in Anaheim.”
