UFC on Fox 12 bout order finalized; prelims to air on Fox instead of Fox Sports 1


With Major League Baseball taking up Fox Sports 1's schedule for July 26th, fans can look forward to watching the UFC on Fox 12 prelims on the Fox network.

It's not often that the UFC being bumped off of Fox Sports 1 can be construed as a positive, but this could definitely be one of those rare exceptions. Due to a Major League Baseball doubleheader, the UFC on Fox 12 preliminary card will be broadcast on the Fox network in addition to the night's main card, which is headlined by Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown.

This marks the first time a UFC on Fox preliminary card has aired on the main network. Previously, UFC on Fox prelims aired on Facebook, Fuel TV, FX, and presently Fox Sports 1. The "main event" of the prelims is a lightweight showdown between Daron Cruickshank and Jorge Masvidal.

Meanwhile, here's the rest of the lineup for July 26th in San Jose:

Main Card (Fox, 8 PM ET)

Robbie Lawler vs. Matt Brown
Anthony Johnson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Clay Guida vs. Dennis Bermudez
Josh Thomson vs. Michael Johnson

Preliminary Card (Fox, 6 PM ET)

Daron Cruickshank vs. Jorge Masvidal
Hermani Perpetuo vs. Tim Means
