Free UFC fights on Facebook

Here's a novel way to deliver free MMA fights to UFC fans: Facebook!

Those of you already are or become Facebook fans of UFC will be able to watch a live stream of two prelims at this Saturday's Fight for the Troops 2 in Fort Hood, Texas. The stream starts at 8 p.m.

Pretty unique way to deliver content to fans, free of charge. Of course, the entire card is free on Spike TV starting at 9 p.m., assuming you're one of the 98 million homes who get it. But Facebook is worldwide, and now fans all over the world (wide web) can watch these two prelims:

Cody McKenzie vs. Yves Edwards
DaMarques Johnson vs. Mike Guymon

All you need to do is click the "Like" button at

Again, the card is already free on Spike, but this could signify a very interesting development for the future. UFC has a good track record of delivering free content to help boost its pay content. Perhaps down the road, fans can start to clamor for prelims from a pay-per-view event to be streamed on Facebook.
