Longtime boxing fan Dana White always envisioned an event like UFC on FOX 1.

The UFC's heavily anticipated and historic network-television debut is reminiscent of the UFC president's earliest boxing memories, when major fights were must-see events.

"This is a throwback to the old days of boxing," he today said.

UFC on FOX 1 takes place next Saturday, Nov. 12, at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. The main event (and only televised fight) features UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez (9-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) vs. Junior Dos Santos (13-1 MMA, 7-0 UFC)..

The event is a precursor to the big-bucks UFC-FOX deal, which doesn't kick off officially until 2012. So next week's event is a sort of a teaser event of what's to come. That's why only the title fight makes it to air (and why the entire undercard streams on FOX.com and Facebook).

It's a pretty damn good "teaser" if you ask me. Not sure how many casual fans will see it that way tho
