UFC Fight Night 49 video: FOX Sports 1 analysts preview 'Henderson vs. Dos Anjos' on Aug. 23 in Tulsa


Not long after one talented wrestler mugged and slugged his way to a decision win, a former lightweight champion will attempt to do likewise against a dangerous division contender.

Doubleheader!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back on FOX Sports 1 this weekend (Sat., Aug, 23, 2014), just a few hours after it ties a ribbon around its exploits in Macau, China (featuring these guys), with a lightweight main event that pits Ben Henderson against Rafael dos Anjos.

"Smooth" wants his title back, while the Brazilian is hoping to get his first crack at the crown.

As for the rest of the card? Well, nothing stands out as "must see," but we do have a couple of recognizable names scattered across the card, which airs on FOX Sports 1, with "Prelims" on FOX Sports 2 and the promotion's new "Fight Pass" digital network.
