UFC on FX: Guillard vs. Miller (also known as UFC on FX 1) was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on January 20, 2012 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.[2]

Background[edit]

The event was the second to be broadcast as part of a seven-year agreement between the UFC and Fox, and the inaugural event to air on FX.[3]

The UFC's second announce team made their debut at this event, featuring former Bellator announcer Jon Anik on play-by-play and UFC lightweight Kenny Florian on color commentary. Anik and Florian had previously worked together as hosts of the ESPN2 series MMA Live.[4]

A featherweight bout between Charles Oliveira and Robert Peralta was briefly linked to this event,[5] but it was later confirmed that Oliveira would instead be facing Eric Wisely a week later at UFC on Fox: Evans vs. Davis.

Rafaello Oliveira was expected to fight Reza Madadi at the event. However, after a hand injury, Oliveira pulled out of the bout and was replaced by Fabrício Camões.[6] Madadi would later withdraw from the bout due to injury as well and was replaced by promotional newcomer Tommy Hayden.[7]

Mike Brown was expected to face Vagner Rocha, but was forced out of the bout with an injury.[8] Rocha will instead face Jonathan Brookins at UFC on Fuel TV 1.[9]

Ken Stone was expected to fight Mike Easton at this event, but was forced from the bout due to injury and replaced by promotional newcomer Jared Papazian.[10]

UFC newcomer Ryan Jimmo was expected to face Karlos Vemola at this event, but the bout was cancelled after Jimmo fell injured a week prior to the event.[11]

The preliminary card aired on Fuel TV.[12]

This event marked the UFC debut of future UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
