The waiting for the announcement for the main event of the first ever UFC on Fox event is almost over.

UFC President Dana White has scheduled a special media conference call for 1pm ET/10am PT on Friday, Sept 2 to announce the main event for the Nov 12 show in Anaheim, Calif.

“The ‘big announcement’ tomorrow at 10am will be the Fox fight,” White wrote on Twitter. “The UFC and Fox are so pumped for UFC on Fox Sports!”

Now for the next 18+ hours the guessing games will begin on who will fill the slot of the UFC on Fox main event for the inaugural card.

While several ideas have been thrown out there, no confirmations have been made at this time.

White promised as of last weekend’s UFC 134 event in Brazil that the main event would be ‘a championship level fight’ and that they fully intended on bringing in the biggest names possible.

Several scenarios seem to exist but some of the more popular theories include Strikeforce champion Dan Henderson returning to the UFC in some form to potentially face someone like Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua or former champion Lyoto Machida.

Others still insist that a fight between Henderson and UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva could still be on the table despite White’s affirmation that the sport’s top pound-for-pound fighter would not appear on the first Fox card.

Another interesting name that keeps appearing is former Strikeforce champion Alistair Overeem. The Dutch wrecking machine was in Los Angeles this week visiting, which of course raised everyone’s eyebrows as to what he might be doing stateside.

The guesses will continue until 1pm ET on Friday when the UFC announces the first main event for their debut show on Fox. will have full coverage of the media conference call on Friday.
