UFC president Dana White admits to feeling some prime-time pressure as the mixed martial arts juggernauts readies for its Fox network debut.

The first show is set for Nov. 12 with Cain Velasquez defending his heavyweight title against Brazilian banger Junior Dos Santos.

Unlike other UFC televised shows, the one-hour Fox special will revolve around the five-round title fight.

White says: "It's going to be a completely different format than what we've ever done before."

The Fox show will be aired live in 16 countries, including Canada.

The fight is taking place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.
