If you woke up this morning and need something to smile about, well this might just be it. Five of the preliminary fights for UFC 131 this Saturday will be streamed live on both Facebook and YouTube. If you’ve enjoyed the recent facebook prelim streams but got somewhat annoyed with the occassional buffering or lagging or the inundation of distracting chat messages from random fb friends asking “if you are watching the fights”-then you should love this new option to be able to watch the fights peacefully over on YouTube.
Spike TV will still be broadcasting our beloved Thug Jitsu Master Yves Edwards vs Sam Stout and Jesse Bongfeldt vs Chris Weidman, but the remaining prelims that include the likes of Joey Beltran and Omigawa and Nick Ring, will all be available for your viewinng pleasure on facebook and Youtube. you can check them out by ‘liking’ UFC on facebook or by going to the UFC Youtube Channel this Saturday night starting at 7pm EST.
