Do you "like" the UFC on Facebook?

If so, you'll be entitled to a free stream of all five of the preliminary card fights at the upcoming UFC 129: "St. Pierre vs. Shields" event on April 30 in Toronto.

This is EPIC!

I actually wish they were on ION or Spike instead. I am not a big fan of watching fights on the internet...especially UFC fights. Enough with the FB Streams already.

Exactly. Especially since I don't have ION.

First off, I don't get ION.

But anyways, who DOESN'T have Facebook? Probably less people that the people who have ION I'm willing to bet.

But a bright spot to the FB fights is that they are commercial free and run like a PPV (at least they did for the Seattle fight night). Yeah, they aren't the best quality, but it's been said before and I'll say it again: I'll take free MMA any way I can get it!

I love that we at least get to see the prelims but I would prefer to have a couple on tv cause its kinda gay looking at a 4 inch screen...

You do know that you can increase the screen size, right?

The first event I watched on Facebook had a sub-par quality stream but they've all been nearly HD ever since with next to zero lag. I'm assuming the streams will only get better with time.

I wish they add the majority of the fights to Spike, and maybe add 1 or 2 prelims to Facebook. I go out to the local sports bars with friends to watch the fights. Just another reason to get out of the house when I'm not working. Only problem with that is I can't watch the Facebook fights.


Oh well, I guess I don't have the right to be picky. I just watch at Wild Wings or Hooters and don't pay for the PPV.

The only positive aspect of Facebook is the free UFC prelims
