The third UFC on Fox event is targeted to take place on May 5, the same night boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has booked for his next fight, though it appears unlikely to be a superfight with Manny Pacquiao.
The potential date was reported by Dave Meltzer and Bloody Elbow.
UFC on Fox 2 takes place on January 28 and features a tripleheader of Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis, Chael Sonnen vs. Mark Munoz, and Michael Bisping vs. Demian Maia.
Junior dos Santos knocked out UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez in just 64-secondsat the first UFC on Fox event on Nov. 12, which also took place on the same night as a major boxing match, but concluded before Pacquiao outpointed Juan Manuel Marquez on pay-per-view. The UFC would likely repeat the strategy if UFC on Fox 3 and Mayweather both land on May 5.
The UFC on Fox 3 main event has not yet been reported and likely hinges on the results of upcoming bouts as most of the UFC’s top fighters are already scheduled for their next matchups.
