The opportunity to watch two live prelim fights for free from UFC® Fight For The Troops 2 is now only a click away. The Ultimate Fighting Championship® announced today that fans will have the ability to watch two exciting UFC contests on Saturday, Jan. 22 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT by simply clicking 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.”

Maybe it's because I'm like the only person on earth not on Facebook (and never intend to be on it), but this gets a big thumbs-down from me.

Accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world and a great way to promote the UFC's Facebook page and, ultimately, the UFC brand. Care to explain how it's stupid?

Yea, what's the problem? This is a great idea.

Can't get on NBC? Facebook is bigger than NBC.

Possibly because your Satellite/Cable provider offers Ion? Mine doesn't. Therefore...

Facebook > Ion (x 1000)

love the idea. Hopefully lots of people will watch. I don't understand how others think this is a bad or dumb idea.

Also, Facebook overtook Google...yes, overtook Google...as the most visited website in 2010.

Edit: which reminds me...Fleek, when is the PG gonna make the leap?

Yeah this is instantly one of the best business moves ever for both the UFC and Facebook. Both brands are exposed to new demographics, and in staggering numbers.

Most of the people who have a Facebook are on there 1-50 times a day.

If Ion is in 900 million homes, 899 million homes are unaware of it

Agreed. I'm in my 20's, so of course I have Facebook. I have no problem with it. Great way to watch and chat with my local buddies who aren't with me.

I know it may seem like an extra burden, but you can link the Twitter account to Facebook and kill 2 birds with 1 stone...and you can select which tweets go to Facebook. And it's all free, so no real downside. I've set up a couple of fan pages before, so if there are any questions, just shoot.
