"I'm telling you: It's going to be the best television card we've ever done."—Dana White, New York City, 4/26/13

As it turns out, the UFC prez was not exaggerating: Here is your first look at the official poster for UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs Sonnen on FOX Sports 1, live from Boston on Aug. 17.

The supremely stacked card anchors the launch of "America's New Sports Network" with live coverage starting at 6 p.m. ET and features a main card that includes Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Chael Sonnen, Alistair Overeem vs Travis Browne, Urijah Faber vs Yuri Alcantara, Matt Brown vs Mike Pyle, and "The Ultimate Fighter 17" finalist Uriah Hall vs. John Howard.

"FOX has big, crazy plans for that week," White said following the UFC 159 card in Newark, N.J.

Indeed we do.
