The Ultimate Fighting Championship will stream two fights from the evening's preliminary action live on Facebook.

What you have to do is simple: click "like"on the UFC Facebook page and a live stream will be provided by the organization.

TUF 12 alum Cody McKenzie (12-0) will face off against veteran Yves Edwards (39-16-1) at 155 pounds and Ultimate Fighter Season 9 alum DaMarques Johnson (16-8) will tangle with Mike "Joker" Guymon (13-4-1) in the welterweight division.

UFC President Dana White has long stated that he is always searching for ways to provide fight fans with ways to view his organizations fights and this further solidifies that.

White stated: "I'm always looking for ways to give fans fights for free and this is just another example of that. 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."

The aforementioned fighters will help lead into the night's main event, which features talented lightweight Evan Dunham (11-1) versus the explosive Melvin Guillard (44-9-3, 1NC).
