For months now the UFC has been planning for a blockbuster show on Aug. 17 at TD Garden in Boston, Mass. to kick off the launch of the FOX Sports 1 television network. The main event features Brazilian star Mauricio “Shogun” Rua taking on Chael Sonnen, and the co-main event features Dutch kickboxing champion Alistair Overeem vs. Travis Browne.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has announced the full and official fight card for what UFC President Dana White is calling “the most stacked card in UFC history”. “UFC on FOX Sports 1: Shogun vs. Sonnen” (UFC on FOX Sports 1: 1) takes place Saturday, Aug. 17, at TD Garden in Boston, Mass., and the event will mark the UFC’s debut on the new UFC on FOX Sports 1 channel.
