When UFC 129 fires up from Toronto in a little more than a week, fans will be given the unique opportunity to watch the entire show from top to bottom thanks to the UFC’s decision to stream five undercard bouts live on their Facebook page. Two preliminary pairings had already been announced as airing on Spike TV.
News of the UFC’s upcoming generosity was relayed via the company’s Twitter account where it was also mentioned the Facebook stream will begin at 6:00 PM EST.
The quintet of match-ups set for Facebook will feature a collection of Canadian talent and specifically are Yves Jabouin vs. Pablo Garza, John Makdessi vs. Kyle Watson, Jason MacDonald vs. Ryan Jensen, Ivan Menjivar vs. Charlie Valencia, and Claude Patrick vs. Daniel Roberts.
Also, as previously reported, Sean Pierson will face late replacement Jake Ellenberger on Spike TV starting at 7:00 PM EST with Nate Diaz’s bout against 21-year old blue-chipper Rory MacDonald also set to serve as a lead-in for the PPV portion of UFC 129.
