The UFC’s huge broadcast deal with Fox means that the bulk of live UFC coverage will be moving from Spike to the FX Network. The first live card to air on FX will take place on January 20th in Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The main event will see two top lightweight contenders looking to get back in the win column as Jim Miller will face off with Melvin Guillard. This will only be a three-round fight, despite Dana White stating earlier this year that all main events will be five rounds. The card only has about half of the bouts announced so far, so you can expect a little more star power to be added soon.
Jan 20th, live on FX from Nashville, TN:
Jim Miller (20-3) vs. Melvin Guillard (29-9-2)
Duane Ludwig (21-11) vs. Josh Neer (32-10-1)
Pat Barry (6-4) vs. Christian Morecraft (7-2)
Kamal Shalorus (7-1-2) vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov (16-0)
Reza Madadi (11-2) vs. Rafaello Oliveira (14-5)
