UFC on FOX gets first fight in the form of Dustin Poirier vs. Pablo Garza

It didn’t take long for UFC to announce the first fight for the UFC on FOX event on November 12.

Exciting featherweights Dustin Poirier and Pablo Garza will battle it out in a contest that has the potential to be fight of the night.

Both men are 2-0 in their 145 careers and in the UFC.

Poirier knocked off Josh Grispi at UFC 125 when many believed Grispi was the top contender to the title. He followed that up with a victory over Jason Young at UFC 131.

Not to be out-done, Garza has a knockout of the night victory against Fredson Paixão via flying knee and a submission of the night victory over Yves Jabouin courtesy of a flying triangle.

When speaking to FiveOuncesOfPain.com earlier today, Garza stated, ““He’s a tough guy, a really good fighter. It’s going to be exciting. And if I beat him, it’s going to really legitimize my name in the weight class.”
