Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit figure to put on quite a show in their interim welterweight title fight at UFC 143 in Las Vegas on Feb. 4. Now, you can watch that show like never before: in 3D.

The UFC has aired its pay-per-view card in movie theaters several times before but never in 3D. And for you movie buffs, this isn't post-production 3D conversion such as with "Clash of the Titans." It's a live stream in 3D, which means there are going to be some large cameras cageside obstructing press row and perhaps a few front-row seats.

UFC 143 will go live in more than 100 theaters across the country. Here on Long Island, you get purchase tickets for $25 at these two theaters:

Farmingdale Multiplex Cinemas
1001 Broadhollow Rd
Farmingdale, NY 11735

Island 16 Cinema De Lux
185 Morris Ave
Holtsville, NY 11742

In Manhattan, try:

Clearview Chelsea
260 W. 23rd St.
New York, NY 10011

For your $25, you'll see these five fights, plus the possibility of prelim bouts if the PPV fights end quickly

Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit
Roy Nelson vs. Fabricio Werdum
Josh Koscheck vs. Mike Pierce
Renan Barao vs, Scott Jorgensen
