UFC announced the first bout for the FOX Fight Night, as Dustin Poirier meets Pablo Garza on November 12.

After UFC announced FOX Fight Night as their inaugural event for FOX, featherweights – Dustin Poirier and Pablo Garza – are said to meet for the event. The announcement was made on Thursday by UFC officials.

Dustin Poirier, a former WEC fighter, makes his third appearance in the UFC since moving to the said promotion. And it seems that he plans to keep his record clean since dropping down to featherweight. Dustin Poirier’s last two fights have seen him dominate former title contender, Josh Grispi, as well as pick up a tough win over British banger, Jason Young.

On the other hand, fellow WEC transport – Pablo Garza – is hoping to stop Dustin Poirier’s winning streak. He first blasted through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace, Fredson Paixao, with a flying knee at the TUF 12 Finale show, and then submitting Yves Jabouin with a flying triangle choke at UFC 128 back in April.

The fight announcement marks the first official bout for the historic debut of the UFC on FOX, after the monumental deal was struck and announced earlier in Thursday.
