UFC: Fight for the Troops 2 Prelims Live on Facebook

Jason MolesContributor IJanuary 18, 2011

If you wanted more free fights this Saturday, you're in luck. You dreams are just a click away. Zuffa announced earlier today that when you click the “Like” button on the official UFC Facebook page.


By liking Facebook.com/UFC, fans will gain access to a live stream of the lightweight battle between Cody McKenzie (12-0) of The Ultimate Fighter® and veteran Yves Edwards (39-16-1), as well as a pivotal welterweight clash pitting TUF alum DaMarques Johnson (16-8) against Mike “The Joker” Guymon (13-4-1). Fans that do not have a Facebook account are encouraged to sign up at www.facebook.com.


“I’m always looking for ways to give fans fights for free and this is just another example of that,” UFC President Dana White said. “Facebook is such a great tool for people to stay connected and we’re excited to put two live fights on our UFC page for free.”


Following these bouts, fans can tune in to Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT to watch the live broadcast of the Fight For The Troops 2 main card from Fort Hood, Texas. The card is headlined by lightweight battle between Evan Dunham (11-1) and Melvin Guillard (44-9-3, 1 NC).


I'm sure I speak on behalf of all MMA fans when I say that I'd much rather watch the fights on Spike or ION on my HDTV. That being said, I'll take a few extra fights any way I can.
