Everything You Need to Know About the UFC on Fuel 7 Fight Card
Just the facts, ma'am.
I know that a lot of you enjoy reading analysis. That's why you come to Bleacher Report. Because here, you're inundated with analysis from every angle, for every fight and every potential storyline.
But sometimes, you don't want analysis. You just want the facts, and that's what I'm going to provide to you today.
They're coming to you in three slides: how you can watch the fights online and on television, complete gambling odds for the entire card, and then a few random facts from my buddy Mike Bohn, who does excellent work over at MMAMania.com.
Where to Find It on Television

The best thing about cards held in London, as opposed to Brazil?
They're held in the middle of the day. You can wake up, watch the preliminary fights before making yourself a sandwich for lunch, and be through with the main card in plenty of time to take a shower and go out by yourself to that neighborhood bar where everyone gives you a sad and knowing look.
What? You think I'm talking about me? Come on. (I totally am talking about me).
Here's all the crucial information you'll need if you're looking to watch this London monstrosity in its entirety:
PRELIMINARY CARD: Facebook, 12:15 p.m. ET
MAIN CARD: Fuel TV, 3 p.m. ET
