10 Fights Signed for UFC on Fox 1 on Nov. 12

“The Ultimate Fighter” Season 9 finalist DaMarques Johnson (Pictured, File Photo) will lock horns with Clay Harvison in a preliminary welterweight duel at UFC on Fox 1 “Velasquez vs. Dos Santos” on Nov. 12 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Ten fights are now official for the landmark event, which marks the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s debut on network television.

Johnson (12-9, 3-3) last appeared at UFC Fight Night 24 in March, when he submitted to second-round elbow strikes from Amir Sadollah at the Key Arena in Seattle. The 29-year-old West Jordan, Utah, native trains under Jeremy Horn at the Elite Performance gym. Wins over former King of the Cage champion Michael Guymon and International Fight League veteran Brad Blackburn anchor Johnson’s resume.

A quarterfinalist on Season 13 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Harvison (9-3, 1-1 UFC) last fought at UFC Fight Night 25 in September, when he succumbed to a second-round rear-naked choke from Seth Baczynski at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans; the defeat snapped his three-fight winning streak. Harvison, a 31-year-old Marietta, Ga., native, has never suffered consecutive losses as a professional.

A five-round heavyweight title fight pairing undefeated champion Cain Velasquez against once-beaten contender Junior dos Santos will headline UFC on Fox 1. Meanwhile, former WEC champion Ben Henderson will toe the line against Jackson’s Mixed Martial Arts representative Clay Guida in a de facto title eliminator at 155 pounds.
