The lightweight title rematch between Frankie Edgar and Benson Henderson is upon us. All the talk, all the predictions and all the smack talk comes to fruition tonight, and you better be there to see it firsthand.
Reading about a fight afterwards is not nearly as fun as watching it live, so here is your step-by-step, do-not-miss-a-single-fight guide to UFC 150.
The Facebook Prelims
The Facebook prelims can be caught on Myspace and Reddit.
OK, but seriously, you can catch the early preliminary action on the UFC's Facebook page beginning at 7:30 p.m. EST.
While Eiji Mitsuoka vs. Nik Lentz is not necessarily the most tantalizing of matchups, this is MMA, after all, and you never know what might happen. Better tune in to find out.
The FX prelims can be caught on TBS. OK, that joke wasn't that funny the first time, so I apologize for going for it again.
The FX Preliminary card starts at 8 p.m. EST with The Ultimate Fighter alum Dennis Bermudez taking on Tommy Hayden and Jared Hamman battling Michael Kuiper.
In addition, a pair of bantamweight bouts anchor the prelims, with Ken Stone taking on Erik Perez and Dustin Pague vs. Chico Camus.
The Main Card
The UFC 150 main card can be caught live on pay-per-view, with the action kicking off at 10 p.m. EST.
The lineup is as follows:
Justin Lawrence vs. Max Holloway
Yushin Okami vs. Buddy Roberts
Ed Herman vs. Jake Shields
Donald Cerrone vs. Melvin Guillard
Benson Henderson (c) vs. Frankie Edgar
Not too shabby, eh?
If you do not want to shell out the dough for the pay-per-view card, I feel you, and here is what I recommend: go to a bar.
Seeing fights surrounded by similar-minded fans of MMA is pretty damn fun, and restaurants like Buffalo Wild Wings and Applebee's are in on the action.
If neither of these establishments is in your vicinity, try calling your local sports bar to see if they are buying the fight. Expect a $5-$10 cover charge if you choose this route, but that is still a far cry from the $55 cost of buying it yourself.
Now there is no reason for you to miss any of the UFC 150 action, so if something epic happens and you missed it, I told you so.
Enjoy the fights responsibly, my friends!
