Nate Diaz and Benson Henderson are the featured attraction on Fox, but the UFC's night of free action begins online.

Three bouts will be live streamed on Facebook starting at 4:20 p.m. ET on December 8. The next step of the card moves to FX at 5 p.m. ET and then the main card will be on Fox at 8 p.m. ET.

Highlighting the live stream action will be a bantamweight bout between John Albert and Scott Jorgensen. The latter is a UFC veteran who has compiled a record of 13-6 in his MMA career. 

This will be Jorgensen's fifth UFC bout, but he's dropped his last two fights. He began his UFC career with an exciting first-round KO of Ken Stone at The Ultimate Fighter Finale 13 in June of 2011, but the results have been mixed since. He needs to make a strong impression.

At only 5'4", he's a little dynamo, but at times he has problems getting inside of his opponent's reach.

Albert hasn't exactly been tearing things up in the UFC, either.

He's 1-2 in Dana White's world, and one has to wonder if he'll be allowed to stay with another loss. A defeat would be his third in a row and could spell the end of his time in the UFC.

Like most of Jorgensen's opponents, Albert will have a significant reach advantage. Jorgensen's only hope is to be able to shoot the legs and make this a wrestling match, but as you can see in this video prior to his time in the UFC, he can be had on the mat as well.

He doesn't pack a significant enough punch to compensate for his size disadvantage. Expect to see him run his losing streak to three.
