UFC follows up historic show with second fully available card

Continuing to build on their ongoing initiative to provide the public with free MMA the UFC will once again offer an event in its entirety when UFC 130 rolls around in a little less than two weeks as the promotion previously did last month during their record-breaking stop in Toronto.

According to an announcement from the UFC, fans can catch a trio of preliminary pairings through their Facebook page starting at 7:00 PM EST, then tune into Spike TV an hour later and catch two more fights prior to the PPV firing up at 9:00 PM EST.

Whether the bouts on May 28 will live up to the sky-high standard set by UFC 129’s highlight-heavy undercard remains to be seen though the entire lot of match-ups certainly have the potential to drop the jaws of those dedicated enough to watch things unfold live before the night’s final five fights get underway.

Set for showdowns on Spike TV, rising star Demetrious Johnson will test the gas tank of fearless former WEC champ Miguel Torres in bantamweight action while Ultimate Fighter Season 3 winner Kendall Grove takes on apt finisher Tim Boetsch at 185 pounds.

Meanwhile, the Facebook portion of UFC 130 is set to feature Renan Barao vs. Cole Escovedo, Chris Cariaso vs. Michael McDonald, and Bart Palaszewski vs. Gleison Tibau.

    I still can’t believe they didn’t find another big name fight for this card after the Maynard/Edgar pulled out. I’m glad to see them putting the prelims out for free, cause I don’t think they’re gonna do that many buys. Matt Hamil is headlining a PPV!?

  • THEGUNNER says:

    Id rather see mir vs nelson move up to main event rampage has said he has not been fighting the same and slowing down and hamill couldtn finish tito. I give it to hamill l
    By leg kick leading to ref stopping it.

    I don’t understand the fb hatred. It’s a free site and you can watch free MMA on it now. If you don’t want to deal with the rest of it you don’t have to. Turn all your privacy settings to the highest and only sign on when there’s a fight to watch.

  • MCM says:

    I agree that Hamill is gonna take this fight, but I wouldn’t count not finishing Tito as a mark against him. Chuck has been the only guy to finish Tito in the past decade. It was actually the way Matt handled Tito that makes me think he’s gonna punish Rampage.
    Still not a main event though.

  • Rece Rock says:

    Back to Back PPVs where the Co- Main Event is better then the Main Event ?!? Guess we’ll see what happens…

  • king mah mah says:

    Hamill is going to lose big. Rampage by TKO rd 1 or 2.

    I agree with hindsightufuk when i too say FUCK FACEEBOOK!!! I don’t care if it’s free mma or porn! I’m still not getting sucked into facebook!! LOL reminds me of that south park episode that makes fun of facebook. It’s called “you have zero friends”. It’s a fuckin riot. Check it out if you haven’t seen it.

    This is sort of a weak card for me, but i am interested to see what Mir does against big country. So I might still fet it.

    The whole damn thing should be free not just the 1st 5 prelims. This card isn’t PPV worthy……..it’s actually just a glorified UFC Fight Night :-(
